Event information

The Giiyong Festival will take place at Jigamy, just north of Eden. It will be the South East NSW's first multi-art form festival celebrating traditional and contemporary Aboriginal culture through dance, art, music, film, theatre, food, sport, workshops and cultural tours.

Giiyong Festival will be the first event of its type held within the Yuin Nation, which stretches from the Shoalhaven River down into East Gippsland in Victoria and across to the Great Dividing Range.

Giiyong (pronounced Guy-Yoong) means 'come to welcome' in the South Coast language as spoken by the Elders. Giiyiong is bringing together some of the region and the nation's finest Aboriginal musicians, performers, writers and presenters to share their culture and their stories with the entire community.
