FESTIVAL CANCELLED | We have regrettably made the decision to cancel this year’s Fremantle International Street Arts Festival due to growing concerns about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is following advice today from the Federal Government and leading health experts.
Making these decisions is always a tough balancing act, however your health and safety will always come first.
We have been working with an incredible group of artists this year and where possible will be inviting them back in 2021.
See you on the streets next year,
The Festivals Team
This Easter long weekend, the City of Fremantle will be transformed into the world's biggest street theatre when the Fremantle International Street Arts Festival returns from Friday, 10 April 2020 to Monday, 13 April 2020. An annual Easter tradition, the festival is popular within the historical port city and is a wonderful opportunity to visit the City of Fremantle and see what it has to offer.
The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival features some of the best local and international street performers performing a range of spectacular outdoor shows, such as busking, street theatre, comedy and circus. The performances will take place on the streets of the City of Fremantle and will be FREE to watch and suitable for people of all ages. To view the 2020 festival program, click here.
The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival began in 1999 as a way to celebrate the local busking culture within Fremantle. The festival has only grown since then and is now a celebration of everything that is weird and wonderful about the City of Fremantle.
