OzAsia Festival will be held 24 October – 10 November 2024.

OzAsia Festival is Australia’s leading contemporary arts festival engaging with Asia. It presents a bold and exciting line-up of boundary-pushing contemporary arts each year and is revered by audiences and critics alike.

Held annually over three weeks in spring, OzAsia Festival showcases the best theatre, dance, music, visual arts, literature, food and cultural events from across Asia. Its extensive program has included artists from around the world.

“The impressively curated performance and exhibition program is making OzAsia Festival an essential destination for interstate visitors as well as local audiences.”

— Daily Review, 2018

Family audiences love OzAsia Festival’s Moon Lantern Trail – a free, colourful, four day, outdoor event; and foodies adore the Lucky Dumpling Market - the vibrant and ever-popular OzAsia Festival hub offering delicious food inspired by Asian cuisine, bars, and free entertainment throughout the festival. OzAsia Festival’s writing and ideas program In Other Words also showcases conversations about Australia’s engagement with Asia in the largest dedicated showcase for Asian and Asian Australian writers and thinkers.

There is something for everyone at OzAsia Festival and we invite you to join us when we celebrate the best of contemporary Asia in Australia each year!

Adelaide Festival Centre's OzAsia Festival is produced on Kaurna land. We respect the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Adelaide Plains. We honour their cultural and spiritual relationship with their country and we do so in the spirit of reconciliation.
