Cultural Events & Festivals

Tall trees, calm white sandy beaches, ribboning vineyards, natural amphitheatres and bustling main streets combine with sunny days and starry nights to provide the perfect setting for cultural events and festivals.

Music, art and cinema all make an appearance on the festival calendar and the events range from major concerts to smaller gigs, screenings and performances.

The arts and culture scene in Your Margaret River Region is thriving, which is attracting international and national artists and creating our own. Check out the cultural festivals and events calendar.
