1 – 3 November 2019

Natimuk is a small town (pop 500) in a big space. Deep in the wheat belt of Western Victoria, Natimuk is home to an eclectic mix of farmers, retirees, rock climbers and artists. The Main Street is a place to walk the dog, gather tumbleweed and meet for a chat on the Post Office steps. However, every two years, the township becomes the Nati Frinj! From the Hay and Thespian Mardi Gras to Aerial Shows, from exhibitions and new theatre works to Silent Disco Walking Tours, the Nati Frinj is a chance to celebrate and express the creative energy of Natimuk and our invited artists.

The 2019 Frinj progamme is currently under development… watch this space!

ACT Natimuk is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.


Let’s try and keep things clean:

The Nati Frinj has the stated target of reducing waste produced at the event and becoming a “no single use plastic” event. This includes the following objectives:

  • No single use plastic bags or plastic packaging to be given out or sold at the event. We encourage everyone to refrain from distribution of single use plastic bags, cutlery, straws and plastic bottles and avoid all unnecessary plastic packaging.
  • We seek a commitment from all participants at the festival to reducing waste, recycling and the use of reusable products (e.g. reusable bags/cups/cutlery/etc)
  • The Frinj commits to celebrate and promote the reduction of waste and recycling

And Safe for Everyone:

The Nati Frinj is committed to promoting and protecting the interests and safety of children. We have zero tolerance for child abuse.
