Festivals and Performances in NSW

Dinner and a show, anyone? You'll find performances, shows, theatre and festivals all over NSW, and many are completely unique to the region.

NSW's South Coast is home to a range of creative communities, which lends itself to some fantastic theatre, folk festivals, art shows and cultural days.

Whether your passion is folk rock or opera, you'll find live music performances all over NSW's country regions. There are also eclectic fairs and festivals, food and wine events, Irish celebrations, short films under the stars, and more. In Mudgee, regional street feasts and heritage festivals are the highlights on the events calendar.

NSW's Snowy Mountains is also a great destination for cool climate events – whether it's a muster, a music festival, a theatre performance or a chance to join in annual Australia Day celebrations.

And don't miss the music, theatre and shows on NSW's North Coast – you'll find festivals in sustainability, cultural diversity and food, so rich is the region's local produce. Lismore's also a performing arts hub with free monthly concerts to check out. If you're planning a trip to World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island, nightly jazz concerts in June, July and August make it a great winter destination.
