Free family-friendly festival EverNow will return this October, illuminating iconic locations around Perth with displays and performances celebrating Western Australia’s rich biodiversity and creativity.

The festival will run from October 3 to 7, during the wildflower-blooming season of Kambarang – a time of birth, new life and renewal.

While additional programming hasn’t yet been revealed, EverNow will welcome back the immersive and transformative Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak illuminated light, projection, soundscape and song trail to Kings Park, which was attended by over 87,000 people during last year’s festival.

Showcasing Noongar songs and dance, Song Circle will also return with a fresh new production, alongside new Australian-exclusive content across the five day festival.

“EverNow was a roaring success last year with tens-of-thousands of people coming along to the different events on offer and similar numbers expected to attend this year,” said Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman.

“The free event is an excellent showcase of the incredible culture and creativity of Indigenous people and I hope the WA community will get behind EverNow to learn more.”

“We’re grateful to our partner, Perth Festival, for their fantastic work in bringing EverNow to life and I look forward to seeing it unfold again this Kambarang.”

“It’s great to have some new and exciting elements and locations added this year, which will help to bring back those who attended and enjoyed the free festival last year, while also attracting new crowds too,” added Acting Tourism Minister John Carey.
