Jubilee In The Dust: Celebrating 50 years

Nameless Jarndunmunha Festival

This year’s concept “Jubilee In The Dust: Celebrating 50 Years” takes us on a journey from the days when the “Nameless Festival Day” was first held on 12th October 1969 until modern day. We’ve scoured old newspaper clipping, videos and spoken to previous Festival Committee organisers to come up with a program that reflects the Festivals of old and new, in the Pilbara dust.


Expect to experience once again, a more grassroots festival with lots of local talent on show, events for whole family to enjoy without getting out the wallet. The long established institution of the Street Parade remains very much at the heart of the Nameless Jarndamunah Festival kicking off the festival on Saturday.

Over the years the highlight of the Festival has been the Nameless Ball. Last year the Steampunk: Wild West Ball wowed almost 200 patrons from around the Pilbara who embraced the theme, the music and fabulous food. This event was the highlight of the Tom Price social calendar and the feedback from patrons was beyond positive! The Festival opens on the 3rd August 2019 with this highly anticipated event and an amazing theme and live music act will entertain the crowd quick enough to secure tickets when they go on sale.


Be prepared to be motivated by our new concept Home Industry event that will inspire you to enter to see how your hidden creativity matches up to others. Modelled on an Ag’ Show event, Home Industry will allow more of the community to be part of the festival and show off their talents. Our new marques will allow this amazing new event to be in the thick of it all on the Village green amongst the stalls and entertainment. Art, Photography and Wearable Art will also be on show, and this space will be a great place for some downtime away from the bustle of the festival.

Returning in 2019 is the highly successful Grease, Gears and Grills arena. In a town with so many motorbike and car fanatics, we have created this special event just to celebrate this passion. GGG begins with leading the street parade in formation with the town’s classic bikes and rare cars at the head of the procession. A park up on the festival grounds in a designated area with a beer bar, outdoor seating, BBQ cook off competition and live music will see our die-hard enthusiasts have a perfect day in the sun. Our stall holder exec is working hard to source stalls that will compliment this amazing new event.


In a town that is quite frankly, dog-mad, an event just for owners and their four legged friends is hoped to be continued in 2019. Categories such as best-dressed dog, cutest dog, best trick and dog obedience will be a draw card for children and adults alike. This event will be part of the entertainment on the oval during Festival Saturday and is open to both children and adults to enter.


Keep an eye out for the 2019 program when it will be announced soon!

The community will be thrilled show case their talents in the TP-Factor. This event has been well supported by our talented townsfolk. The stage area will be a hive of activity with live music throughout the day including this fabulous community event.


Nameless Jarndunmunha Festival – “Jubilee In The Dust: Celebrating 50 Years” promises to be one of the biggest and best events to date. The 2019 event will deliver community engagement through a myriad of events music, shopping and competition to excite and entertain the community. The festival committee are tirelessly promoting as we speak in towns around the region to attract outer communities to spend time in Tom Price and at the festival. We have strong ties with both Karratha and Newman festivals and are working together to bring the best of the best to town in 2019.
