About the Festival

Karnidale 2019

A festival for two glorious days, over the weekend of the 19th/20th January,

Karridale in south-western WA will come alive to the sound of whoops, whistles and cheers.
Karnidale 2019 will opens its doors at 5pm on Friday 18th Jan and there will be entertainment from 7.30pm to open the festival. The shows, music, market stalls and workshops will then run from midday each day until midnight over the weekend. And you camp for free!

The festival will feature an incredible line-up of international circus cabaret and comedy stars and lively bands from all over the world. Enjoy an authentic festival experience and get up close and personal with acrobats, aerialists and sideshow superstars strutting their stuff on a stunning country estate, just three hours from Perth. You can even try some circus classes, if you’re brave! This is like no other festival experience in the world. Karnidale 2019 will change your life.


The festival itself will have a focus on contemporary circus, which involves theatrical marvels of skill and strength. Each performer and troupe brings its own unique aesthetic from the world over.

Once the kids are tucked in bed, the night-time entertainment takes a turn for the risqué with the late-night cabaret and sideshow not for the faint of heart.

The bars are open all day for those with a taste for our extensive selection of cocktails, spirits and locally brewed beers and wines. Come and sample our very own Lunar Lager, brewed by our friendly Bootleg Brewery in Wilyabrup.
