The Dongara Denison Community Festival Association

The Dongara Denison Community Festival commenced in 1999 and at that time was known as the Larry the Lobster Festival, this event is held annually in October/November. The Festival has grown every year since its inception and is now a major event on the Dongara Denison tourism calendar. This event showcases our twin towns, and its attractions, its people and local businesses. The festival committee consists of a handful of hard working volunteers, who plan the festival to cater for all community members and more importantly brings the community together across all sectors.
