Western Australia’s free event EverNow is set to return this October, with new locations and events added to the 2024 festival program.

EverNow will run from 3-7 October 2024 during Kambarang, the Noongar Season of Birth, and will welcome thousands to Kings Park and other free events, held in soon-to-be-announced new locations.

The multi-sensory festival draws inspiration from WA’s rich biodiversity, creativity and our First Nations people’s enduring connection to the land.

Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak will again transform Kings Park with a display of light, sound and projections – telling the stories of Noongar culture and celebrating the beauty and biodiversity of Australia’s South West.

The bold installationattracted more than 87,000 people during last year’s EverNow festival.

EverNow also welcomes backthe inclusion of Song Circle, a live celebration of Noongar performance that immerses audiences in music, dance, and light.

Events will be open at different times across the five-day festival, including:

  • Song Circle: 3-6 October 2024; and
  • Boorna Waanginy:The Trees Speak: Kings Park, 4-7 October 2024.

EverNow 2024 will also feature exciting new Australian-exclusive content, to be announced soon.

Importantly, EverNow will take place at the same time as the World Travel and Tourism Council Global Summit in Perth, providing an opportunity to experience the event for the hundreds of global leaders who will be in WA .

Developed by Perth Festival, EverNow is intended to become a highlight on the State’s major events calendar.

As stated by Acting Tourism Minister John Carey:

“We’re very excited to confirm the free event EverNow will be returning to Perth again this year after it proved hugely popular last October showcasing the unique attributes of our State.

“It’s great to have some new and exciting elements and locations added this year, which will help to bring back those who attended and enjoyed the free festival last year, while also attracting new crowds too.

“This year’s event is particularly exciting as it falls around the same time as the globe’s biggest tourism summit, meaning another incredible opportunity to showcase our beautiful city to hundreds of leaders from major global companies.

“With EverNow later this year, plus RE//Perth coming up and the TIME RONE exhibition starting next week, it shows our Government is leading the charge when it comes to events and driving visitation into our city.”

As stated by Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman:

“EverNow was a roaring success last year with tens-of-thousands of people coming along to the different events on offer and similar numbers expected to attend this year.

“The free event is an excellent showcase of the incredible culture and creativity of Indigenous people and I hope the WA community will get behind EverNow to learn more.

“We’re grateful to our partner, Perth Festival, for their fantastic work in bringing EverNow to life and I look forward to seeing it unfold again this Kambarang.”
