Mango on menu at Mango Ball and Mango Festival

NT Government

A couple of delicious weekends are on the menu in October, with the Berry Springs Mango Ball scheduled to take place on Saturday, 21 October 2023, followed by the Berry Springs Mango Festival on Saturday, 28 October 2023.

Both events will celebrate everything we love about this iconic heart-shaped fruit, which is something of a national treasure and an iconic symbol of the Top End, supporting scores of jobs and injecting millions of dollars into the Territory economy.

The events will take place at Berry Springs Recreation Reserve, with the Mango Ball including a three-course dinner, live entertainment, door prizes and more. They come at the height of mango season, guaranteeing there will be plenty of delicious mangoes to go round.

The free family friendly Mango Festival the following weekend will include a host of fun activities, such as mango-eating competitions, a mango and spoon race, best mango jam, best mango wine, beset mango dish, colouring competition, fashion parade, biggest mango, a circus workshop and food, drink, craft and gift stalls.

These events are supported by Northern Territory Government through Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC).
