The KISS Arts Festival will return to its stunning Kiama Harbour location on the 29th and 30th April 2017, with the same seaside village feel. While the gorgeous views and great relaxing vibe will remain, there will be a brand new line up of fabulous comedy, circus and music to delight your entertainment hungry selves.

KISS Poster FinalThe KISS Arts Festival is a mixed genre event, focused on creating a platform for Internally renowned, Nationally famous and locally inspired artists to work together to provide outrageous, hilarious and shared theatrical, musical and visual entertainment. Simply put, it is a blast! We have a delightfully diverse program for the whole family. There is no better way to spend a day out in Kiama.

Reported as raging success in 2016, the KISS Arts Festival organisers are looking to grow the event even further for next year. The Lantern parade and release will be an area of particular growth, with the schools getting involved. The raft race is going to go off, getting bigger and better and more competitive – so get your team thinking about their raft now. We will finish the festival with a big named band on Sunday and we hope to amp up the visual art participation with a design your own Orry Kelly statue garden.
