Yabun Festival is the largest one day gathering and recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures in Australia, held annually on 26th of January upon the traditional lands of the Gadigal people in Sydney.
Established in 2001, Yabun (meaning ‘music to a beat’ in Gadigal language) is a free event that features live music, a bustling stalls market, panel discussions and community forums on Aboriginal issues, children’s activities, and traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural performances.
Yabun Festival welcomes everyone to join us in this one of a kind event which honours the survival of the world’s oldest living culture.

Yabun Festival hosts a thriving stalls market, featuring a wide range of food and merchandise, as well as stalls operated by community organisations promoting services and information. You can browse Indigenous themed items, including clothing, jewelry, arts and crafts, music, and lots more.
This year all the spots for our Marketplace are now completely full. If you missed your chance to get a spot, please stay tuned for when we open up applications for Yabun 2019.
Yabun Festival would never happen if it wasn't for the help of so many deadly volunteers. We have now reached our target for 2018, so if you're here to sign-up for this 26th of January, THANKS HEAPS but we're all good.
Hope we see you down at the festival and stay tuned for when we open up volunteer positions for Yabun 2019.
Yabun Festival has a range of different sponsorship packages available to suit the needs and budgets for a range of potential patrons.
