New Date & Venue Announced for 2024 Saltwater Freshwater Festival

Saltwater Freshwater Arts Alliance is happy to announce a reschedule of our much beloved Festival for 2024 in light of the event being called off earlier this month due to rain.  After consultation with Kempsey Shire Council, performers, the SWFW Festival Committee and others, the 2024 Festival is now going to be held on Saturday the 20th of July 2024

Additionally, the festival will now be held on the grounds of the Kempsey Race Club, which has a large undercover area, adequate amenities, connected utilities, dedicated parking, and is along a regular bus route.  The event may have a different look, feel and layout than what we originally intended to deliver at Smithtown Riverside Park, but will still have all the important elements everyone has come to expect at Saltwater Freshwater events.

The Main Stage line-up has changed somewhat as some of the artists originally scheduled for the Smithtown event have conflicts for the new date, but we will still deliver an amazing line-up of performers as well as our regional dancers to entertain you on the day.  We will also have our Elders area, weaving and canoe workshops, Yarn Stage and language elements, kid’s area as well as a large variety of Aboriginal arts and craft plus yummy food stalls.  Saltwater Freshwater appreciates your ongoing support and understanding and apologises for any inconveniences with the rescheduled date and location.   

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday the 20th of July!
