The 18th annual Dunsborough Arts Festival will bring the town’s foreshore to life this weekend, with events like Sculpture by the Bay and the Dunsborough X Factor sure to delight and entertain crowds.

Organised by Dunsborough and Districts Progress Association, the three-day event will also include drumming, circus, art and belly-dancing workshops, an art market, a free family movie screening and two free evening concerts featuring local bands and duos.

Emma Louise Nisbet will kick off Saturday night with a grand solo tribute of classic diva sensations like Barbra Streisand and Shirley Bassey, followed by nine-piece swing band Cherry Pie & the Sugar Rush.

On Sunday night, The New Towns will begin the concert, followed by local Aboriginal cultural custodian Josh Whiteland, with Doug and Cletus wrapping up the evening.

Co-ordinator Jacquie Happ said the DDPA was proud to see the event grow into a dynamic festival, which offered something for everyone.
