Junction Arts Festival returns in 2023 from the 20-24th September with a lush springtime celebration, encouraging you to shake off those winter blues and celebrate Tassie as it comes alive for spring. Coinciding perfectly with the Spring equinox, Junction is the place where Tasmanian art, music and performance collide in a stunning kaleidoscope of colour, full of magical surprises and experiences to delight.
With plenty of free and ticketed shows, there's sure to be something for everyone. From kids shows and fabulous family events, to early evening boogies and late night delights, Launnie will be bursting with captivating visual art, mesmerising light installations and an amazing lineup of the island’s best original music. We also have some of the finest circus and cabaret artists performing within our exceptional curated events. Feast on lavish Tassie food and taste the splendid spirits, wine, and local brews our island has to offer as you party late into the night.
The fountain and the park will always be a focal point. It’s our epicenter, and our tentacles of influence spread from here into the Launceston community, the state, and beyond. From here the audience can gather, then radiate out into the city and discover new offerings, performances, and places.
Volunteers play such a big role in shaping Junction's story. Every year we are overwhelmed by the energy, hard work and passion they bring to the Festival in a variety of roles. Our front of house staff, bar crew, green team, and box office heroes help to make Junction such an amazing event. Want to volunteer in 2023? We can't wait to meet you!Apply to volunteer
