Join us on the 18th June 2022 for our annual Opal Festival.

An Outback Festival like no other!

Celebrating all that is Coober Pedy - opals, underground, outback, and our amazing multicutural community.

The Opal Festival is the largest community event in Coober Pedy and is held annually to celebrate the vibrant and culturally diverse community, opal and mining. The Festival provides an opportunity for the community to come together, celebrate and strengthen its cultural and social bonds. Incorporating food and beverage, craft and market stalls, games and entertainment; the festival provides activities for all ages and cultures in an engaging and entertaining event.

This year we have revisted out roots - Opal Miner's Hall of Fame, Skydiving, and the Friday Night Opal Ball. Check the website for all nomination and booking forms!

Celebrations on the Town oval, kids activities, clowns, pupet shows, fire displays, street parade with a difference - finishing with a spectacular fireworks and live music.
