The Kings Park Festival is a long-running tradition to celebrate spring and the wonderful wildflowers that appear throughout the south-west of Western Australia during this time.
From its humble beginnings as a five day event in 1964, depicting plant specimens in jars on trestle tables, the festival has blossomed into the current format of floral displays, live music, exhibitions, workshops, interpretive artworks, guided walks and family activities during the entire month of September.
The Kings Park Festival presented the ‘Magic of Nature’ in September 2014. Nestled among the most spectacular wildflower show on Earth, around 600,000 visitors enjoyed a bewitching program of live music, exhibitions, fascinating guided walks, family fun and much more.
Santos Live Sundays presented another lively series of outdoor music, featuring Australian songstress Christine Anu, local darlings Stratosfunk and a range of fabulous WA talent. More than 6,000 youngsters were spellbound at the Fantastic Faraway Festival for families.
Outdoor exhibitions ‘Unearthed’ and ‘Uprooted’ took visitors on a journey below ground to explore a different perspective of the natural world.
The 2014 Kings Park Festival was made possible through the valuable support of major Festival partner Santos, Lotterywest, the Friends of Kings Park and The West Australian newspaper. We are also grateful to the army of volunteers and staff who bring the Festival to life each year.
Thank you to everyone who made the 2014 Kings Park Festival such a success – especially our wonderful visitors who danced, picnicked, strolled, listened, watched and smiled through another fabulous September.
The Kings Park Festival will return from 1 - 30 September 2015, we'll see you there!
