About Northern Fringe Festival

In July 2019 and 2021, Townsville presented the Northern Fringe Festival (NFF) which ran alongside the North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA). .

2022 will see a massive change for these two festivals, with NAFA absorbing the NFF to become an arts and cultural fringe festival that will still be inclusive, organic and be an open access festival featuring all forms of art, culture and performance.

The bright colours and our mascot Pinocchi will move over from NFF and the festival will continue down this avenue in the future.

This will not impact artists in their registrations of their performances. If you would like more information, please read our Artist Information Book or contact the team at
