There are a huge range of festivals set to occur in and around Perth this May. Showcasing everything from Indian cuisine and Chinese dragon boats to Spanish films and laneway artwork, here are our top 5 festival picks for May.

Curry Up Now

For those craving comfort food, feast your eyes on Curry Up Now at Curtin University on May 3rd. Travel via your taste buds across the full-bodied flavours of India, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Jamaica, the Philippines, Africa, Malaysia and many more curry-inspired morsels. Don’t let this festival simmer!

 

 


Fremantle Dragon Boat Festival

For an impressive cultural experience, visit the iconic Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour on May 5th for the Fremantle Dragon Boat Festival. The air will be thick with the clash of gongs and beating of boat drums, and guests will behold the traditional Chinese eye dotting ceremony in which Taoist monks bless the waters and “awaken” the dragon figures on the boats.

 

Mount Hawthorn Streets and Lanes Festival

The Mount Hawthorn Streets and Lanes Festival will take place on May 5th along Scarborough Beach Road, from Oxford Street to Coogee Street. With petting zoos, a sideshow alley, free activities for kids and a range of bands, DJs, food, pop-up street bars and an indigenous art exhibition, this is one street party you won’t want to miss in 2019.

 

Vancouver Street Festival

Albany’s Vancouver Street Festival is set to deliver high-quality local arts, crafts, musicians and gourmet food on May 11th. Highlights include the Noongar Song Project, a new original Noongar song created and performed by Noongar musicians, and the Vancouver Project, a pop-up space for local retailers and handmade producers to showcase and sell a variety of crafty products.

 

Spanish Film Festival

Join in the fiesta with the Spanish Film Festival before it wraps up May 15th. The festival promises a diverse and compelling celebration of Spanish and Latino language, culture and film. 32 brand new films will be screened alongside captivating presentations and events with a focus on female directors. Hasta pronto!
