The annual Saint Barbara's Festival has become an integral part of the annual Goldfields events calendar, solidifying the great partnership that exists between the mining industry and the local community of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
The Festival recognises the ongoing socio-economic contributions the mining sector makes to the region and it is a way for the local community to come together to celebrate all that is great about living in Australia’s largest regional outback city!
Miner’s Memorial Service - Thursday 29 November | 6:30pm in Saint Barbara's Square, Hannan Street. An opportunity for the public to honour the men and women who have lost their lives servicing the mining industry over the past century.
St Barbara’s Parade - Sunday 2 December | 11.00am down Hannan Street. A fun filled extravaganza where community organisations, schools, animals, prospectors mines rescue demonstrations and enormous pieces of mining equipment rumble down historical Hannan Street.
The 2018 festival sponsors include GIG members: City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry, KCGM, SMS Mining Services, Evolution Mining, and Northern Star Resources.
