The festival was first organised to sell beanies crocheted by Aboriginal women in remote communities and has grown into a fun event where Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists share their culture and exhibit together. Hand made beanies have long been valued in Central Australia. They are often colourful and individual in pattern and style. Every year beanie lovers gather at Witchetty’s in the Araluen Centre, Alice Springs Cultural Precinct, to admire the latest crop of handcrafted beanies. Local entertainment and great food make the opening a great night out.
