Perth is set to launch a new winter arts and cultural festival this July, with RE//Perth activating multiple Northbridge spaces in a celebration of creativity and urban exploration.

The 10-day event will run during the second week of the school holidays, from 4-14 July, with a hero production running from 2-27 July.

There will also be a huge range of free and ticketed events.

The festival will centre around four key themes:

  • Food element (RE//BIRTH) including a Winter Banquet with high-end degustation food and wine experiences, plus a food market with winter favourites like roasted chestnuts, toasted marshmallows, mulled wine, hot apple cider, and live entertainment;
  • Performance element (RE//FLECT) centring around an exclusive, large-scale WA premiere of dance and acrobatic show The Mirror, from multi-award-winning producers Gravity and Other Myths, which will run for four weeks;
  • Kids element (RE//PLAY) attracting children and families during the school holidays with live entertainment, interactive winter-themed activities, snow cone creations, snowflake projections, live ice carving, winter-warming drinks, and marshmallow toasting;
  • Sustainable fashion element (RE//PURPOSE) highlighting the value of recycled and repurposed fashion through workshops for children and adults.

The festival is a new and diverse homegrown addition to WA’s events calendar delivered by ARTRAGE, the local not-for-profit registered charity and WA arts and cultural organisation known for producing the annual FRINGE WORLD festival.

As stated by Tourism Minister Rita Saffioti:

“RE//Perth is the latest in a series of new events being developed in WA in line with our events strategy, as we focus on having an ‘always-on’ approach and strive to populate an exciting, diverse, and world-class calendar of events year-round.

“This festival will continue to create vibrancy in Perth during the winter months, bringing more people into the city to experience the multitude of experiences RE//Perth has to offer.

“Our vision is to give people a reason to visit to WA every month and every season, and we feel this new festival certainly has the potential to build on this aspiration and become a really iconic homegrown event that WA can be proud of.”

As stated by Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman:

“The State Government is a proud supporter of the arts and culture industry in WA and understands the important role that festivals play in building strong community connections, enhancing cultural understanding and providing a dynamic and vibrant place to live or visit.

“We’re proud to be working with ARTRAGE to deliver this fantastic new festival, and we know from their successful management of FRINGE WORLD that RE//Perth will be another feather in Perth’s arts and culture cap.

“With free and ticketed events, I encourage everyone to embrace the winter weather and join the festival fun.”

As stated by Perth MLA John Carey:

“Our State Government is driving the renewal of our city by creating a year-around calendar of events in Perth – with RE//Perth to bring more people, vibrancy, and activation right into the heart of Perth during the winter months.

“This will be a brilliant winter school holiday event for the whole family or a night out with friends, with a range of free and ticketed events.”
