NAFA is back!
And Covid Safe!
The North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA) will be delivered by Townsville City Council to celebrate the arts while supporting the growth of local business, rebuilding the tourism and events sector and improving economic recovery across the city.
NAFA COVID Safe will be delivered from 18 September - 25 October 2020 and will provide an opportunity for Townsville and its neighbouring communities to attend cultural and artistic events that may have been cancelled due to COVID-19 while supporting the local arts industry.
