Giiyong Festival

Location:
Jigamy, between Pambula and Eden

A CELEBRATION OF ABORIGINAL CULTURE ON THE FAR SOUTH COAST OF NSW

Partners Twofold Aboriginal Corporation, Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council and South East Arts are pleased to be presenting Giiyong Festival again at Jigamy, just north of Eden NSW on Saturday 9 April 2022.

A slightly pared back event compared to 2018 but still offering you the best First Nations music to hit the Far South Coast.

There’ll be an artists market, a reimagined pre-colonisation campsite display developed by Far South Coast high school students, cultural displays, food, dance and spoken word performances.

GIIYONG FESTIVAL PROVIDES A RARE OPPORTUNITY IN SOUTH EAST NSW FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO COME TOGETHER IN CELEBRATION OF ABORIGINAL ARTS, CULTURE AND RESILIENCE.

Giiyong means ‘come to welcome’ in the south coast language as spoken by local Elders
