*2013 Nati Frinj Biennale


Another excellent Kate Finnerty logo!

The Nati Frinj Biennale was on the weekend of November 1st to 3rd 2013. The next one will be 30th October to 1st Nov 2015. If you want to be involved get in touch with us asap. Don’t leave it too late.

Sadly, some lowlife stole one our photographer’s camera and though we got the camera back eventually we didn’t get the card. A tragedy for what was a very exciting festival. We have some images though.

    Hi Kate, I moved to Nati late last year, I was wondering if there’s a group I can join to help out a little with the frinj & get to know a few locals.

      Hi Kerry,

      There is a group meeting roughly every fortnight (currently Thursday evenings at NC2) and there are lots of opportunities to get involved. We are still looking for volunteers and helpers on a range of projects so please do come and join in.

      See you soon.

    Hi Kate,

    We have a group of guys with varying abilities coming up and staying at the Goat Farm out of Horsham on the weekend before Melbourne Cup. DO we have to register for the Hay and THespian Mardi Gras. And what time does the Mardi Gras start as the guys have some costumes that wish to wear at the Mardi Gras.

      Hi Barry,
      Thanks for your message, we would love to see you all at the Hay and Thespian Mardi Gras. It is on 1 November, registration is between 5pm and 5:45pm with the parade to start at 6pm. I will get a pre-registration form available shortly so you can do it in advance.

      The parade will be starting from the top end of town as you are driving from Horsham at the first house on the right. The parade will be down the side lane beside the main highway.
