Gascoyne in May will in 2019 roll into June with the regions sunny winter weather

Gascoyne in May is a coordinated circuit of festivals held on consecutive weekends across the region. Mostly free to attend, each festival is themed to reflect its diverse and individual locations, each celebrating and sharing local culture in their own Gascoyne style!

In 2019 we are delivering one potent project called 'HEARTLAND CARTOGRAPHY’ and we hope you will come and share your heart, your hopes and your voices with us, while together we make 'Festival'!
