The North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA) will return in 2023! Each year the Festival welcomes local, national and international acts to participate in the festival through the Fringe aspect. 
Previously, the Northern Fringe Festival (NFF) was a partner festival of NAFA and operated for the entire Festival period. In 2022, the NFF was absorbed into NAFA making the Festival a Hybrid Curated and Fringe Festival.
