Ice-skating will be coming to the East Pilbara for the first time as part of Outback Fusion Festival 2022 in the first weekend of September.

The community-favoured festival will bring the cool experience among a host of other activities and highlights, to make the Outback Fusion Festival fun for the whole family. The smoke and alcohol-free event will run from September 2nd – 4th, but the ice-skating rink will be available to the community, for free, from September 1st.

“The Outback Fusion Festival is our community’s celebration of the Shire’s cultural diversity and vibrant natural environment. Being able to bring something that’s never been seen in the East Pilbara before, is just icing on the cake,” Shire President Anthony Middleton said.

“We have so much planned for the three-day festival, which incorporates Harmony Day celebrations. There will be live entertainment all three days, market stalls, and so much more. And all for free. Thank you to our major sponsors LotteryWest, Tourism WA and BHP for coming on board.

On Friday, The Square in Newman’s town centre will come alive with culture, with local cultural performances, the New Zealand Haka, and foods from different cultures. The night will also include live performances from bands.

The Square will then be bursting with music and activity on Saturday afternoon, with live music, roving entertainment and food stalls. Other activities throughout the weekend will include basket-weaving at Martumili Gallery, Yoga on the Hill, Paint & Prosecco, and a family-fun day markets on Sunday.

The headline music act this year is the Bradley Hall Band, but the festival will also include Good Strife Duo, Yurti Band, Broken Tides, JoKeria, African Drumming, and close out with a local DJ.

Booking is essential for ice-skating, Paint & Prosecco, and Yoga. You can find all the information at https://www.eastpilbara.wa.gov.au/events/outback-fusion-festival-2022/270
