There are heaps of interesting shows on at this festival
In the months when Perth has heaps of sun, Fremantle is roaring and open. Their food, music, art and culture will all be back again for this festival.
In Fremantle, there is a labyrinth of stately, historic buildings and now that winter is upon us, the lights will be lit and people will frequent inside places instead of outside. Fremantle in winter is a time to discover some of the hidden nooks, to chill out with some warming food, and to sip on drinks and tell tales to your mates!
10 Nights in Port celebrates the way that the Fremantle community comes together and the city itself seems to draw us into the heart of it during the cold months.
This festival will go on for 10 cold nights and you can listen to a lot of music, go to the theatre, see visual arts, films and live performances. These will all be put on by some of Fremantle's most popular local acts and a band of international acts will also be there.
The mayor of Fremantle says that the10 Nights in Port is a time to celebrate the "undeniably special character of Fremantle and the creative community whose music, performances and artworks bring us together."

This is presented by local artist and environmental guru Jesse Lee and it is a champagne bath which has never been so scenic before!
