For 43 years the full moon of September and Shinju Matsuri has celebrated Broome through 10 days of events. The Opening Ceremony, Float Parade and Mardi Gras, Closing Ceremony and Fireworks are just some of our family friendly free entertainment. Our multi-cultural history and magnificent venues are showcased in all events, and our talented local artists perform throughout the festival. We have many special guests that are joining us this year, so keep an eye on the website as we begin presenting our media releases closer to the date.
‘2013 is set to deliver performances and content that showcase Broome and demonstrate why our town is so unique. Our special guest artists and the involvement of the local community will be delivering a festival like no other.’ Festival Director- Jillian Philp
