Karnidale Circus Festival

Friday, 19th January 2024 - Saturday, 20th January 2024


Held over two days in January, the world-class Karnidale Circus Festival takes place on a unique site set in the picturesque surrounds of Karridale.

The festival features an incredible line-up of Australian circus cabaret, comedy and magic, along with live bands, DJs, market stalls and bars. Enjoy an authentic festival experience and get up close and personal with acrobats, aerialists and sideshow superstars strutting their stuff on a running country estate. If you are brave, you can even try some circus classes as part of the Lunar Circus Summer School!

Karnidale Festival is like no other festival experience in the world. Daytime has some fantastic shows and entertainment for the kids, and once they are tucked in bed (camping facilities are available), the night-time entertainment takes a turn for the risqué with cabaret sideshows not for the faint-hearted. Bars are open all day for those with a taste for cocktails, spirits and locally brewed beers and wines.

Tickets are now on sale for 2023, make sure you get in quick – the 2022 and 2023 events sold out!
