17 October – 3 November 2019
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, the extensive OzAsia Festival program, curated by Artistic Director, Joseph Mitchell, includes theatre, dance, music, visual arts, literature, film, food and cultural events from across Asia.
OzAsia Festival has introduced a new literature element to its program, a satellite event of the iconic Jaipur Literature Festival, which has been described as the ‘greatest literary show on earth’. JLF in Adelaide is completely free and is a celebration of ideas, writing, discussion, and debate with writers and thinkers from across Australia and Asia.
Family audiences love OzAsia Festival’s Moon Lantern Parade – a free outdoor event which is also Australia’s largest lantern parade; 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.
There is something for everyone at OzAsia Festival and we invite you to join us as we celebrate the best of contemporary Asia in Australia each year!
