World’s Quirkiest Beanie Festival

13th July 2018

Every year, thousands of people from around the world descend on Alice Springs for the famous Beanie Festival. This is where the humble beanie is transformed and celebrated as a work of art and raises crucial funds for the local Indigenous artists and their communities. The artistry and inventiveness seen at this event is legendary.
