Bridgetown celebrates being the winter capital of Western Australia with a three-month long Fridgetown Fest! Known for cool, crisp, misty mornings, rolling green hills and the warmth of country hospitality, Bridgetown and neighbouring Greenbushes, are an ideal location to rest, relax and take in some of the winter activities on offer.

For those who prefer sitting beside a roaring fire, keeping toasty, the restaurants, cafes, pubs, wineries and brewery serve hearty fares, thirst quenching brews or finest cellar drops. You’re welcome to come and search for vintage or handmade treasures, shop ’til you drop in our various boutique stores or peruse at your leisure along Main Street and soak up the warmth of creativity from our local art studios and galleries.

If you’re seeking a bit of adventure, come take in the trails, canoe the river, walk part of the Bibbulmun or let the kids loose to breathe in the fresh air while exploring the plethora of nature trails around Bridgetown and Greenbushes.

This year sees a change up in how we present the festival. We are releasing the program monthly instead of as one long booklet. The June edition is now available. July and August will follow as separate flyers, allowing us more programming flexibility ie even more wonderful events as the months roll on!

June features cooking and karaoke, hot roasts and cosy live music, arts, crafts, games and education. Whether you’re a local looking to enjoy all that your community has to offer, or a tourist seeking a memorable winter experience, we invite you to join us by embracing the cold and joining in some heartwarming activities!

Keep an eye on Fridgetown Fest page for all the details of the programme, so that you can plan your escape to the Southwest for Fridgetown Fest!
