Bull & Barrel Festival | Dardanup
This year’s Festival theme is ‘The Great Irish Escape’ which commemorates 150 years since the arrival in WA in 1868 of convict John Boyle O’Reilly and then his infamous escape 12 months later from the coast near Belvidere!
The Bull and Barrel Festival is held every year on the last Saturday of the October School holidays. This year it’ll be held on Saturday 6th October 2018 from 10am until 9pm.
Our free festival is created by the Dardanup Community to celebrate the diverse offerings of the Dardanup region. It is a great low cost day out for families with over 150 market and food stalls, live music and demonstrations, a monster kids craft marquee and plenty of animals!
Other attractions include the Tastes of the Ferguson Valley tent, trash and treasure stalls, Die cast toys and mini trains and of course the Wespine Fire Sculpture.
The festival’s spectacular finale is in the evening. Live entertainment is provided until the lighting of the Wespine Fire Sculpture which is always built by a local artist. Hear the crowd roar as the ‘bull’ burns!
