Yabun Festival is the largest one-day celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture in Australia.
It takes place on 26 January and returns to Victoria Park (and surrounding venues) in 2022. First held in Waverley in 2003, this will be Yabun’s 20th year anniversary.
In 2022, there are three ways to get involved with the celebrations:
Join us at Victoria Park for Corroboree and the marketplace. From midday to 8:30pm, visitors will be treated to cultural performances, a sunset ceremony, food, and deadly Indigenous goodies.
Tune into the Yabun Stage, Corroboree and Speak Out via Yabun.org.au from anywhere in the world.
Listen to the action directly on Koori Radio 93.7fm or via the Koori Radio app.
The Yabun Stage will take place in the Everest Theatre at the Seymour Centre. There is a limited 500 person seat capacity. Tickets are free and you can register interest here or listen to Koori Radio 93.7FM for your chance to win.
