NAFA 2020

Townsville City Council is committed to delivering its annual Arts and Cultural Festival, the North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA). This year, Council will be delivering a modified version of the Festival to support the local arts community, rebuild the tourism and events sector and improve economic recovery.

NAFA COVID Safe will be delivered from 18 September - 31 October 2020 and will provide an opportunity for Townsville and its neighbouring communities to attend cultural and artistic events that may have been cancelled due to COVID-19 while supporting the local arts industry. Please read our COVID-19 Conditions of Entry.

The Festival will include a variety of new performances including Wonderland Under the Stars, Art in the Park, Beauty Rich and Rare plus plenty more!

To ensure your NAFA experience runs smoothly, we have put together some handy hints and tips to help you plan your next month
of events. Download our Frequently Asked Questions.
