Colour New England Street Arts Festival

Save the date & join in the fun as we celebrate the last of the warm weather and  longer days, and savour the beautiful colours of the New England.

Saturday APRIL 6 - Beardy Street Mall

Join local artists, musicians, writers, performers and crafters for an exciting day of fun and creativity at the inaugural Colour New England Street Arts Festival.

The festival will bring Armidale’s Beardy Street Mall and surrounds to life from 2pm and culminate with a light show at 8pm. A makers’ markets, arts activities, exhibitions, crafts, workshops and street art will be accompanied by window displays, demonstrations, street theatre, food markets and much more. Musicians will perform in the mall and nearby venues from 2pm to 10pm.

International chalk artist Rudy Kistler will transform the centre of the mall with a wonderful 3D work. Audience members can watch the professional street artist create a mural for the city - celebrating our wonderful autumn colours, long days and wide open skies – then put themselves in the picture and capture the moment with a selfie.

Kids and adults can enjoy plenty of hands-on activities. Learn a new skill or get up close and personal to watch talented locals create something special.  Get to know your local creative community and be inspired to take up a new interest.
