Held over two days in each January, the world-class Karnidale Circus Festival take place on a unique purpose-built 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 stunning 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 risque with cabaret sideshows not for the faint-hearted. Bars are open all day for those with a taste for our extensive selection of cocktails, spirits, and locally brewed beers and wines..

Dates for 2023 have been confirmed as 13 and 14 of January, with tickets on sale from 1 October 2022, Make sure you get in quick as the 2022 event sold out!
