The St Barbara’s Festival consists of the Miners Memorial Service and the St Barbara’s Parade. This year over 200 people honored those we have lost in the mining industry and up to 10,000 people came and experienced the Parade for all its glory and an amazing display of our vibrant Kalgoorlie-Boulder community.

Starting with the Miners Memorial Service, family members, mine management, mine rescue personnel, and the broader community will come together in reflection and remembrance of those who have lost their lives in the mining industry.

The Festival will conclude with the St Barbara’s Parade. This extravaganza showcases our community. Companies, not for profits, schools, prospectors, animals and community groups march down historical Hannan Street, celebrating and embracing the year that was. From people on foot through to a CAT 793 Haul truck, there is something for all ages to see.

Without the support of our valuable community stakeholders, the Festival simply could not be the success that it is.
