Yabun Festival is the largest one-day celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture in Australia. It takes place annually on 26 January in Victoria Park, Sydney. In 2022 Yabun celebrates its 20th Anniversary.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the need to keep our mob safe, Yabun will be delivered in both Victoria Park and the Seymour Centre with Free entry.
The general public is welcome to watch the Corroboree and visit the Yabun Marketplace, which will both take place outdoors at Victoria Park. QR Code entry is required, and physical distancing is recommended.
In Person at Victoria Park and the Seymour Centre. Public Health Orders Apply.
