One Day in Fremantle

One Day in Fremantle 

One Day smoking ceremony

The City of Fremantle’s award-winning One Day celebration is returning on Saturday 25 January with a fresh approach for a more intimate and meaningful experience. The 2020 event will focus on the Kidogo Arthouse Precinct for a showcase of Aboriginal food, culture and music with a particular emphasis on young and emerging talent. A Smoking Ceremony will start the day’s proceedings, which includes music, dance, craft activities, food tastings and an art exhibition. The family-friendly community event will close with a sunset ceremony including the burning of six balga trees that will carry a closing message of renewal through dance, fire and song.
