Welcome to the 2019 Festival of Busselton
Many people have volunteered their time to ensure the ongoing success of the Festival and on behalf of the community I extend my thanks to all those who have been involved over the years.
Please support the 55th Festival of Busselton - it’s only through continued community involvement that these free family focused events can remain viable and continue to grow.
Have a safe and happy summer.

Mayor Grant Henley
The City of Busselton is a very proud long-time sponsor of the Festival of Busselton. This locally-born Festival has enjoyed outstanding longevity, and the fact that it continues to be embraced with such enthusiasm is testament to the community’s genuine affection for it.
The Festival of Busselton remains as relevant today as it was over 50 years ago. Long before the region carried the mantle ‘Events Capital WA’; the Festival was delighting locals and drawing visitors. The success of the Festival of Busselton, especially during the early years, paved the way for the evolution of our now truly brilliant event calendar.
Festival time is synonymous with summer time here in the City of Busselton and the 2019 programme is packed with events & activities.
The fresh Festival committee will promise a bigger and better line up this year with the ever popular events and lots of great new events. Bring the whole family as there will be something for everyone.
I encourage local people who may not have joined the festivities for a few years to reconnect with the Festival. It provides many opportunities for free family fun and a great excuse to come together with friends to enjoy the new foreshore area overlooking beautiful Geographe Bay.
