Make a day out at this huge Fremantle festival
Over the Easter long weekend, the streets of Fremantle will once again become an open-air stage for the world's best street theatre, busking, comedy, circus and loads more.

You will be able to watch world-class performers from around the world as they perform all around Fremantle. You can join in the fun of this street party and watch the major street stages, chill under the large Norfolk pines that Fremantle is renown for or bring a picnic with friends and family, and watch the entertainment happen right in front of you.

You can have some craft beer at their first fully licensed "pitch" in the Little Creatures Buskers Bar or join the party after dark to see great entertainment, spectacular illuminated bird-men, and crazy roving characters.

This is Australia's biggest and best street arts festival and it will be held for three full days over the Easter long weekend, making it an ideal way to spend your Easter weekend.

The historic streets of Fremantle will come to life as these artists perform whilst transforming the city into a world stage every day over Easter.

Some of the artist appearing in this year's festival include:

The BirdMen will invade Fremantle, with prehistoric, glowing creatures who adapt to the world around them! This is an unforgettable show for all ages.

Katie Wright Dynamite
Katie spins 35 hula-hoops on her body at once and has an amazing act with juggling, fire, knives, and eggs.

Charlie Caper

Yoyo Show
The world-famous Yo-Yo Guy, holder of five Guinness World Records and a world yo-yo champion title, will be on here.

Oscar and Strudel
For over 24 years, Oskar and Strudel have entertained audiences around the globe with a "physical, musical examination of the eternal struggle between control and chaos". It is a fascinating, hilarious experience, as these mismatched clowns explore the human condition with surprising results.

The Talking Lamposts

Di Fillipo Marionette
Di Filippo Marionette's family of expressive wooden marionettes are a fabulous range of puppets which will appeal to all ages. These silent playful marionettes weave their stories, interact with the audience and share their dreams.

WA Honk! Fest (see below for more details)
Kate and Pasi
Kiki Bittovabitsch
The Kif-Kif Sisters
Quartuor Stomp
The Pilgrim
And more

You can find the list, as well as read all about each act at the Street Festival website. This site also has times and places to see each act.

These artists, some of whom have travelled across the world to be there do not get paid, so if you've enjoyed their performance, please put some money in the hat, as this is how they make their living!

Theatre is not always in a "black box with curtains"! At the Fremantle Festival, you can enjoy international productions performed in the open air.

These performers roam around and pop up in places all around Fremantle during the festival.

There will be heaps of musical acts again this year and sounds of music will be all around!

You will hear folk, and so much more.

Even though the majority of the festival's acts are on the streets, there are selected events that will have limited audiences and will require ticketing.

Vision-impaired or blind people can also enjoy these shows via the Access All Arts audio description programme, run in conjunction with DADAA.

The WAHonk! Fest is one of the main performers of this festival and they will be returning this year.

Street bands from all over will be playing in Fremantle and will party in the streets. There will be about 30 different bands playing here - one of these is WAHonk! Fest, a street band spectacle featuring alternative community bands from across the nation. It is a parade, a party and a raucous celebration.

The format will be very similar to 2017, with the streets closed off to traffic over the Easter long weekend. WAHonk bands will have time slots and locations to perform and busk at key times during the festival.

The dates are Good Friday evening 30th March to Easter Monday 2nd April, 2018, and this is an event "not to be missed".
