Shinju Matsuri is Japanese for ‘Festival of the Pearl’ and Broome celebrates the excitement and romance as a world-renowned producer of South Sea Pearls. The annual pearl festival rekindles a time when the Japanese, Chinese, Malay, Koepangers, Filipino and Europeans flocked to Broome from the late 1800s to join in with this prosperity. Shinju Matsuri is a testament to Broome’s generosity as it tempts 1,000s of annual visitors in a whirlwind of cultural flair for over 50 years and rejoices from 22 August to 5 September 2021.
