28 October â€“ 11 November
MESSAGE FROM FREMANTLE’S MAYOR Woolah. Kaya wanjoo Fremantle Festival ngany djiripin ngalak doyintjdoyintj yoowarl koorl waabiny wer djerp-djerp. Wow... what a festival we have in store this year. Flicking through the draft festival schedule on my desk a few weeks ago I was flabbergasted by the quantity, quality and variety of this year’s Fremantle Festival program. And as you look through it now I am sure you will be too! Of particular note, and after a break of some thirty five years, I am very pleased and proud to see the historic Blessing of the Fleet ceremony opening this year’s festival. Coupled with the all new Seafood Festival at Fishing Boat Harbour and a spectacular opening fireworks display the opening day of this year’s Fremantle Festival will be one not to miss. The last few years have seen the Fremantle Festival go from strength to strength, building on over a century of tradition while at the same time continuing to add modem components and flare. A robust festival is a sign of a robust City and this festival is certainly robust and brimming with lots of things to do and see, much of it drawn from the local community and highlighting what an extraordinary community Fremantle is. With over 90 events to choose from this year, you will be spoilt for choice. A major highlight for me this year is the staging of the fabulous French Ariel Dance Company Retouramont.
Their performances of “Cette Immense Intimite” on the Wall of Craig Mostyn House in Leak Street is truly the must-see event of this festival, and an Australian Premiere to boot! I am also really looking forward to Wardarngi at the Fremantle Arts Centre and have already been brushing up on my Nyoongar. I will also be at the Norfolk Lanes Youth Festival, the Children’s Fiesta, and of course the closing parade where you never know what you might see. There is everything from the funny and ridiculous to the noisy and the controversial. And let’s not forget the Cappuccino Strip! Newly renovated, it will play host to the annual Coffee Festival. Cafes, restaurants and bars will be spilling out onto the street in celebration of all things coffee. Coffee roasters from across the state will be tempting you with their samples, and there will be a smorgasbord of entertainment on the street including the famous Gino’s Spaghetti eating contest! There are so many highlights in this year’s festival it is impossible to mention them all. So I suggest you sit down at one of the city’s famous cafes, order you favourite brew and have a browse through this program to start planning your festival itinerary. I look forward to another huge crowd this year for what promises to again be the highlight of the City of Fremantle’s 2012 event calendar.
