Colour Tumby Street Art Festival 2019

April 12 - April 14

Colour Tumby Street Art Festival returns in 2019 bigger and better thanks in large part to an Australian Government grant via the Building Better Regions Fund, along with local and national sponsorships.

2019 will see 11 wonderfully talented street artists visit Tumby Bay from across the globe including two local street artists collaborating together for the first time, a couple of returning favourites, and some new world class artists all coming together over the weekend.  These artists are certain to ensure a memorable event on the South Australian calendar.

As well as that world class artist line up, this year there will be a full and impressive program for the local community and visitors alike.  Thanks to Optus and their state-of-the-art LED movie screen there are free movies on Tumby Bay foreshore, an opening night at The Hub with great food, music, drinks and merchandise available.  Saturday sees “Tapas with Friends” return to The Hub after last year’s success.  An exciting live concert at the Soldier’s Memorial Hall with Melbourne rockers Kingswood is sure to be a huge hit, supported by SA bands Junior and Ripcord.

Free silent discos for the event’s younger attendees will be hosted by and thanks to Tumby Bay’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC).  A couple of later night adult silent discos will also be held on Friday and Saturday.

Event organisers are delighted this year to also welcome the involvement of the local Barngarla people for an exciting collaboration with Australian large scale portrait specialist Adnate, returning for his second appearance at Colour Tumby Street Art Festival.  Adnate will visit Port Lincoln prior to the event to discuss and develop this project with Barngarla representatives.  Barngarla artist Vera Richards will be working alongside Adnate for this mural.  Everyone is incredibly excited to see the final result of this special collaboration.

Local school children will be more involved this year with a free “Paint-By-Numbers” mural at Tumby Bay Area School by French artist Choq.  Some of the school students have also decorated a “Roaming Piano” that will be strategically placed around Tumby Bay during the event for anyone to jump on and play.  Also returning from last year is “Chalk the Walk” on Tumby Bay Foreshore walking trail. Multi-coloured chalks will be available for all to show off their creative side and decorate the path for the three days of the festival.

The festival opens on Friday 12th April and runs through to Sunday 14th April.  Booking your accommodation and travel in advance is advised.
