Festival Dates Set!!!
Contracts have been signed with Wickham
Park, so we can announce that our 15th annual Native
Rhythms Festival will return to our home in the park on November
10-12, 2023. Our team is already
hard at work starting to put all of the elements of this
year's festival together, so stand by. As news becomes
available, we'll make announcements on our Facebook
page and include them in updates to our website
While we transition this website from the 2021 festival to the
2022 festival, you will find pages from both years'
events. You can tell when a page has been updated to this year's
information by the presence of our 2022 logo (with the red wolf, as on this page) replacing our
2021 logo (with the rising Phoenix). Check
back from time to time as we update our information.
We invite you to help us get the word out about our festival.

you think they might be seen by anyone who could be interested
in joining us in Wickham Park in Melbourne on November 11-13.
This website is a living entity that will grow throughout the process of planning this year's festival.
