Nimbin Mardigrass Festival

The Nimbin community comes together for celebration during the first weekend of May.
Autumn is a time for harvest of summer produce before the winter chill sets in.

The Mardigrass Festival is a colourful, musical feasting affair. A highlight is the Mardigrass Parade with its gunja fairies, dancing down the main street in their fanciful costumes.

Hemp Info, expos, hemp goods, market stalls selling their wares and
many culinary tastes, musicians and performers entertaining and
all this with a large dose of humour in the form of the Hemp Olympics.

Local business provides the daily needs of tourists and locals alike.

A truly fun filled celebration to note in your diary each year.

Next Mardigrass:
Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th of May, 2008
