Alice Springs Beanie Festival
The Alice Springs Beanie Festival (Beanie Festival) is a community arts event that provides opportunities for artists from remote Indigenous communities and the wider community to make, exhibit and sell beanies. Through workshops, a competitive exhibition, a touring exhibition and participation in national events, the Beanie Festival celebrates the humble beanie, the creativity and storytelling of Indigenous artists and Beanie Makers from across the country and the globe. We are an annual event since 1997 and plan to continue well into the future. Over 500 beanie makers from around the world create and are involved in the Festival, 150 volunteers attend to run the festivities and over 7000 visitors participate in events over the weekend.
