Experience World-Class Entertainment at Fremantle’s International Street Arts Festival this Easter!

International artists and creatives are flocking back to Perth and Western Australia after a slow 2022 and an iron curtain-like blockade of our borders during covid.

The much-loved International Street Arts Festival is set to hit the cobblestones of Fremantle after a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19.

From April 7 to 10, the port city will be transformed with a vibrant program of activities as around 150,000 people flock to the city. The festival is the largest of its kind in Australasia and is the centrepiece of the City of Fremantle’s arts and cultural program.

Fremantle Mayor Hannah Fitzhardinge said the City had been working hard post-COVID to enhance Fremantle’s status as a destination city and the return of the Streets Arts Festival would provide another welcome boost for businesses.

“Once again this Easter, the streets of our historic city will be transformed into an open-air theatre packed with amazing, weird and wacky performers, as our much-loved festival comes back with a bang,” she said.

The Cappuccino Strip will be closed to vehicles, allowing venues to extend their alfresco dining out onto the street. Night shows will complement the daily program of festival activities which will be held on stages around the city including at Walyalup Koort, Esplanade Park and Fishing Boat Harbour.

The festival will feature international acts from Japan, Scotland, Zimbabwe, Northern Ireland, Ethiopia, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Canada, Italy, the Philippines and the USA, along with performers from around Australia.

“Whether you’re coming from around the corner or around the world, you can be sure of a very warm welcome in Freo this Easter,” Mayor Fitzhardinge said.

Fremantle’s International Street Arts Festival is sure to be a highlight of the Easter long weekend, with its unique blend of performances, sights and sounds sure to draw crowds from near and far. It’s a great chance to show the world just how vibrant and exciting the port city can be.

So save the date for the most Freo of Freo festivals of the year.
