Undulup Association’s Act Belong Commit Bunuru Festival returns to Riflebutts Reserve in Prevelly, Margaret River on 24 February for a celebration of Indigenous culture and community on Wadandi Boodja.
The beloved festival, now in its fourth year, is a family-friendly, smoke and vape free day out where both Indigenous and non-Indigenous members of the community can come together, share stories and culture, learn new skills or listen to an exciting line-up of entertainment from some of Western Australia’s best Indigenous talent.
The 2024 program includes a packed schedule of workshops and arts activities for the whole family including basket weaving, paint by numbers and hip-hop workshops, group colouring in, keychain making and kite workshops.
The talented line-up of artists on the main stage includes Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse, Phil Wally-Stack, The Nomadics, MissGenius and Coen Fowler.
A range of stalls and food trucks will also round out the day’s offering.
Undulup Association Chair Zac Webb said the festival was an opportunity for the wider community to come together to celebrate Bunuru, the second Summer, and showcase local Aboriginal culture.
Mr Webb said, ‘It’s about bringing community together, on country, to celebrate country.’
‘I’m looking forward to seeing everyone out there, friends and families connecting and enjoying the music, crafts and things to do.’
‘And I’m really looking forward to the day itself, where our family can celebrate culture alongside the wider community that live and work on Saltwater Country.’
Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and water vessel, and settle in the day.
The Act Belong Commit Bunuru Festival is proudly supported by Healthway, Lotterywest, Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association, The Shire of Augusta Margaret River and AHOY Management.
