One Day 2020

Perth & Fremantle


8:00am to 8:00pm Saturday 25 January


Location: Kidogo Arthouse Fremantle

Bathers Beach, off Mews Road, Fremantle, Western Australia 6160

The City of Fremantle’s award-winning One Day celebration is returning on Saturday 25 January with a fresh approach for a more intimate and meaningful experience.

The 2020 event will focus on the Kidogo Arthouse Precinct for a showcase of Aboriginal food, culture and music with a particular emphasis on young and emerging talent.

A Smoking Ceremony will start the day’s proceedings, which includes music, dance, craft activities, food tastings and an art exhibition.

The family-friendly community event will close with a sunset ceremony including the burning of six balga trees that will carry a closing message of renewal through dance, fire and song.

The free event will also serve as a fundraiser for the Australian Bushfire Appeal with attendees encouraged to donate to the Fremantle Foundation's Freo Fund for Fire Affected which has been set up to support affected communities in the wake of the recent devastating bushfires.
