New Territory Day date announced

Territory Day is now set to be held on 29 August, after COVID-19 restrictions caused the 1 July celebrations to be postponed.

The theme for this year’s celebrations is ‘Home’, with four signature and 17 community events – all complete with fireworks – to take place across the Territory.

Appealing to both Territorians and visitors, the four signature events will include a special Welcome to Country, to drive home the Territory’s proud Aboriginal heritage.

Adding to the local flavour, the soundtrack to the firework displays at these events will feature a range of music by Territory musicians, including Yothu Yindi, Tasman Keith and Stevie Jean, Jess Mauboy, King Stingray and Warumpi Band.

Nationally renowned performers will travel to the Territory and line up on stage alongside some of our best home-grown talent at the events in Darwin and Alice Springs, with more details about the line up to come.

The Katherine and Tennant Creek events will have a ‘homegrown’ focus, with an exciting array of local musicians given the opportunity to perform.

Family friendly events across this vast land, from Groote Eylandt to Yulara, will help regional and remote communities celebrate what they love about home.
