Celebrate Aboriginal culture at The Yugambeh Mobo Festival
The Yugambeh Mobo Festival, the Gold Coast’s biggest celebration of Aboriginal bush foods, stories, music, language, art and culture, is back again this Sunday May 29 at Somerset College in Mudgeeraba.
Immerse yourself in the rich history of Aboriginal culture at The Yugambeh Mobo Festival. The free event showcases the talents of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and provides a fantastic opportunity for the broader community to take part in a range of free and ticketed workshops and demonstrations including art and crafts, boomerang throwing, introduction to Yugambeh language and cooking with native foods.
New to The Yugambeh Mobo Festival for 2016 is an art gallery featuring works by renowned Kalkadoon artist Chern’ee Sutton as well as pieces by local artists Lisa Sorbie Martin and Leeton Lee. With live entertainment all day, including the Yugambeh Museum Youth Choir, Didgeridoo Orchestra, local band The Zookeepers and a variety of Aboriginal singers and dancers, festival goers can kick back on the grass with some exceptional entertainment whilst feasting on a lunch from the Bush Tucker Cafe. Ticketed workshop prices range from $5 to $10, buy online here.
