Family Festival (aka Fishy Fringe)

Every year an arts-based family friendly festival has operated on the Whyalla Foreshore. 2016 will see this festival combined with the Snapper Championship to create one big anniversary event aimed at celebrating local sea-life, boosting tourism to the region and supporting local community groups. The Festival will have live music, children’s entertainment, amusement rides, arts and crafts stalls, and delicious food options.

Fun and games for kids of all ages

Bring the whole family down to Whyalla this Easter. Kids can exercise their creative side with workshops run at set times during the weekend. For those who are more energetic there will be sports activities to run around at, the older kids can line up for one of the amusement rides, or for anyone who loves horses you can’t miss the horse and trolley rides.

Live entertainment

Listen to some great local musicians while you enjoy your lunch or afternoon picnic. The Eyre Peninsular has some amazing live acts that we can’t wait to share with you. Local school children will also be performing so be sure to get down early to stake out your place on the grass. The main stage will be running all day over the Saturday and Sunday.

Arts and crafts stalls

Local and regional arts and craft stalls will be back selling their creative work, baked goods, and knick-knacks. Wander the stalls for a great opportunity to pick up a bargain.

Delicious food

Don’t miss out on picking up lunch at the Festival. Food trucks, local chefs and community groups will be cooking up a storm for you this Easter. Support your local sporting club or community group by picking up a snag from the barbie, try a wood-oven pizza, hot baked potatoes, or freshly brewed coffee – there’s something for everyone.

Thank you!

We would like to thank the TS Whyalla Navy Cadets and Whyalla Scout Group for their continued support. The children and adults associated with these organisations provide great support, ensuring the event runs smoothly each year.
