Townsville’s premier arts and cultural festival is back for a special COVID Safe edition this year.

The North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA) COVID Safe will be delivered by Townsville City Council to celebrate the arts while supporting the growth of local business, rebuilding the tourism and events sector, and improving economic recovery across the city.

The Festival will include a variety of new performances including Wonderland Under the Stars, Art in the Park, Beauty Rich and Rare plus plenty more!
