The doors open with a weekend of free, family friendly activities before Yagan Square hosts a special celebration weekend later in March with the Bunuru Welcome festival. 

It all starts from 11am on Saturday when you can walk through the square for the very first time. Take a look at the playspace, enjoy the public art, relax on the lawn or head straight for the Market Hall or Horseshoe Lane to grab a coffee and a bite to eat. 

Throughout the weekend there will be free entertainment including face painting, crafts, roving performers, live music and Aboriginal dance performances. Bring the kids along for Hula Hoop and Circus Skills workshops at 1.15pm and 2.15pm each day.  

You can sit back and enjoy a special performance from the talented Gina Williams in the amphitheatre or streamed live on the Digital Tower screen on Saturday at 12pm. 

The screen will be full of interesting content all day and night, including a live feed from 10am of the official proceedings taking place before the square opens to the public. The canopy will put on a show that lights up the entire square for those visiting in the evening

Come for lunch, stay for dinner - our food and beverage teams will be serving up a smorgasbord of eats until 10pm every night.

You're also invited to celebrate Yagan Square on 23 - 25 March when the Bunuru Welcome festival fills the square with more fun and free entertainment and activities.
