Perth has a lot to offer all year round, from music festivals to cultural celebrations. If you want to make the most of your trip and experience everything that Perth has to offer, then it’s worth planning your trip around some of the key events that take place in the city.
Some of the events that you might want to consider include:
Margaret River Pro
The Margaret River Pro is one of only two Australian events on the famous World Surf League (WSL) World Championship Tour (CT), and the world’s best professional surfers participate in the event each year, generally in April or May. With giant screens broadcasting replays, expert commentary, food trucks, and merchandise kiosks, the event hub has a festival feel. The best part is that young surfers can get up close and personal with their idols, who take their time after each heat to mingle with groms who line the pathway for autographs and selfies.
Fringe World Festival
Fringe World is a phenomenally popular annual festival held in Perth that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Fringe World’s fantastic assortment of entertainment has something for everyone, including comedy, music and musicals, circus, and much more, and ticket costs are reasonable, allowing you to see numerous shows in one night.
The Fremantle Festival is an annual community festival that takes place over three days and features culture, music, and laughter filling the streets of Fremantle.
