Denmark Arts Markets 2019-2020
Upcoming Market Dates
Sat 25th January (Australia Day Long Weekend)
Sat 11th April (Easter Saturday)
First established in 1981 the Denmark Arts Markets is a showcase for local and regional craftspeople, artisans and entertainers.
Held four times a year these markets take pride in providing a venue for upcoming and established creators and designers to present their products to the public.
The markets are brimming with handcrafts and innovative creations. So much to tantalize and delight, not to mention that you can take a break and sit on the lawn overlooking the river while being entertained by a diverse line-up of talented local musicians and performers.
Denmark Festival of Voice 2020
The Denmark Festival of Voice is an intimate festival held in the small and beautiful village of Denmark on the South Coast of Western Australia. It is a celebration of the power and beauty of the human voice, (however we also include the voice of the natural world).
The only festival on mainland Australia dedicated to voice, we welcome expressions of interest from musicians, story-tellers, speakers, poets, writers and any other artists whose work has ‘voice’ at its centre. With around 25 workshops, the Festival is also a fabulous opportunity for Professional Development.
The Festival is held over the WA Day long weekend. In 2020 this is 29-31 May.
