The Fringe Festival is taking over Tanaka Lane in Chinatown as a vibrant festival arts hub.

The best thing about Festivals is the joyful creative vibe they bring to a town, and the Festival Laneway will be the beating heart of local arts, craft and music… with a little festival bar!

The Festival Laneway is in the heart of Chinatown and is a creative space with murals on the walls celebrating the environment and stories of Broometown’s multicultural social history. It’s the perfect spot to meet the artists and create your own personal artwork.

Sign up for one of five free art workshops with some of our most amazing local artists, and then hang around to see one of the top musos playing around town… and have a pre-dinner drink at the festival bar while you’re there.
