Desert Festival 2020 Opening Street Party

Get your social bubble ready and sanitise those hands because it’s time to kick off Desert Festival 2020!

Head down to the Alice Springs Town Council Night Markets for a springtime soiree of food trucks, locally made goods, live music and more. Start your evening at the Reflection Pond for a special Welcome to Country and official festival welcome then follow the musical adventure of the SAFARA Parade down to the Desert Festival Concert stage.

Head over to the Uccello lawns to learn about the Itinerant Art Project and meet the artists, then entertain the kids with a sneak peek of our 2020 kids theatre show, ‘The Fly Swats’.

Check out our Box Office market stall down the mall and book your tickets to one of our exciting events. Come say g’day plus have the opportunity to throw yourself into Darwin 2050 with our virtual reality film, ‘Storm Dog’ by Caro McDonald.

Desert Festival has been made possible with the generous support of the Northern Territory Government and Alice Springs Town Council.

We’re excited to bring you Desert Festival in 2020 but to keep our community safe, please download the COVID-Safe App, wash your hands and keep your distance. Pre-register your attendance for free events online and skip the queue.
