Fremantle will be the only official celebration hub in metropolitan Perth for WA Day festivities outside of the State’s major celebration being organized at Burswood.

Hosted every year on the first Monday in June, the Fremantle WA Day celebrations will be held at Mews Park, Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbor, Bathers Beach and WA Shipwrecks Gallery between 11am and 7pm on June 6.

The traditional crowd-drawing derby between WAFL rivals East Fremantle and South Fremantle at Fremantle Oval will also be a highlight of the public holiday.

Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbor Traders Group festival producer and artistic director Nella Fitzgerald said the festivities would present an “exciting, colorful and energetic panorama” of WA artists.

“The festival will showcase the traditional and contemporary face of our multicultural Australian community through music, performance, theater and hospitality and provided a stimulating cultural experience to all participants and attendees,” Ms Fitzgerald said.

“It will be a celebration of all Western Australians, recognizing our Aboriginal history, early European settlers and the many from all over the world who have made, and continue to make, Western Australia their home.”
