Shinju Matsuri FestivalShinju Matsuri is Japanese for the ‘Festival of the Pearl’, and is a culmination of three cultural groups, the Japanese Obon Matsuri, Malaysian Hari Merdeka and the Chinese Hang Seng. The festival derives its name from Broome’s early days, where giant pearl shells grew along the unspoiled and untouched waters of the Kimberley coast.
Therefore, established in 1970, the festival celebrates the myriad of cultures that came to Broome at this time, including Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Koepangers and Europeans. Shinju Matsuri showcases both local and international talent to encourage the education of Broome’s rich history. Events include performing arts, lantern festivals, and cultural nights, ensuring there is something for everyone!
