There’s no better time to be in the tropical Top End than during Darwin Festival each August, where a fabulous festival wonderland awaits you. Balmy nights under twinkling lights provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable dry season, the Top End’s tropical winter.

In 2020 we hosted a very special community celebration, shining a spotlight on Territory talent with 11 homegrown August nights. Just as the first Festival brought Darwin together in the wake of Cyclone Tracy in 1979, the 2020 Festival was a much-needed pick-me-up; a source of hope and positivity as well as a celebration of Territory strength and resilience while a global pandemic reigned.

Australia’s hottest winter arts festival combines the quintessential spirit and energy of Darwin with warm outdoor festivities and a vibrant program of events for an unforgettable good time. Join in the fun of hot August nights and start planning your 2021 Northern Territory adventure now. Block out 5-22 August for Darwin Festival 2021!
