About Fremantle International Street Arts Festival:

FISAF started as a celebration of Fremantle’s local busking culture in 1999 and has grown into a showcase of the world’s best street theatre.

The historic streets of Fremantle are transformed into an open-air theatre with the famous Cappuccino Strip closed to traffic and High Street West End presents the West End Weekender. Entertainment centres around several major ‘pitches’ or performance locations and roving performers pop up in surprising and interesting places all across the city.

Fremantle’s famous alfresco dining steps up a notch, with pop-up bars, eateries and boutique stores extend into the streets.
