The Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival is a week of art, music and culture showcasing in early May, heralding the Dry Season.  It kicks off at Sunset Park on a Friday arvo/eve, 'Sunset Park PM', followed by a full day of events along the Nightcliff foreshore, 'A Day on the Foreshore' and runs throughout the week 'Branching Out' into spaces and venues in the community who may not have the capacity to physically join us outdoors on the foreshore.


Seabreeze began as, and remains, a strongly volunteer and community-supported festival. In 2004 a group of artists, small businesses and community organisations joined forces to create a community festival. Senior Kungarakan Elder (Litchfield area), Kath Mills was invited to join these initial meetings and named the potential festival 'Seabreeze'. 


A year later the org became an incorporated, not-for-profit organisation, affectionately known as NAMCI - Nightcliff Arts, Music and Culture Incorporated and 2005 saw the inaugural Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival hit the foreshore with colour and culture.


The aim of the Festival has held strong in providing a local forum for all facets of the arts including visual arts, music, dance, circus, performance, spoken word, exhibitions, and workshops. 


Performance platforms provide opportunities for our artists to grow and develop while encouraging cross-cultural diversity and collaboration in our community. Staging a free event such as this has been built on long-standing collaborations and partnerships across the wider community.
