Friday June 20 - Monday June 23, 2014
Welcome to the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. One of the worlds’ most unique festivals. A four day event held in the heart of Australia bringing together over 6000 original handmade beanies (woolly hats) from around the world. We celebrate outrageous headgear and promise a heart-warming, soul enriching experience full of colour and joy.
In Alice Springs….
The Festival Program includes exhibitions, Craft Workshops, live entertainment, scrumptious food and the opportunity to meet and experience the Indigenous people of remote Central Australia through workshops, demonstrations, art and genuine bushtucker (yes kangaroo tail is on the menu!)
A highlight in the Alice Springs calendar, the Beanie Festival is the perfect reason to Plan A Trip to the Red Centre and explore this rich, divine part of the world.
For Every One
Our mission is to offer all the people of the world the opportunity to engage in the arts. You don’t have to make it to the Beanie Festival to be a part of the Alice Springs Beanie Loving Community. You can become a Welcome Beanie Makers, a Volunteer a Support Us or proud wearer of an original Alice Springs Beanie Festival Beanie from anywhere around the globe.
And we help….
We are a Not For Profit Organisation. Our inspiration is providing support and opportunites for the remote Indigenous people of Central Australia through Indigenous Beanie Making Programs and attending the Festival
We also assist others in need. Through a variety of organisations we provide free beanies to the old, the young, the disadvantaged and those living with cancer.
