An Outback Festival like no other!
Celebrating all that is Coober Pedy – opals, underground, outback, and our amazing multicutural community.
The Opal Festival is the largest community event in Coober Pedy and is held annually to celebrate the vibrant and culturally diverse community, opal and mining. The Festival provides an opportunity for the community to come together, celebrate and strengthen its cultural and social bonds. Incorporating food and beverage, craft and market stalls, games and entertainment; the festival provides activities for all ages and cultures in an engaging and entertaining event.
This year we are returning to our roots, and reintroducing the Opal Miners Hall of Fame, and the Friday night Opal Ball!
And – there’s skydiving – a once in a lifetime experience to parachute over the opal fields and unique desert landscape.
Held on the Town Oval.
Saturday oval parade, stalls, entertainers, side shows, fireworks.
Events all over town before and after the event – stay tuned!
Come along and get down and dirty!
