Shinju Matsuri - Festival of the Pearl 2022

Shinju Matsuri
Saturday, August 20, 2022
to Sunday, September 4, 2022
Various
Various locations around Broome, Cable Beach and Chinatown. To be advised.

The annual Shinju Matsuri (Japanese for “Festival of the Pearl”) originated from three cultural festivals – Japanese Obon Matsuri, Malaysian Hari Merdeka, Independence Day from British rule in 1957, and the Chinese Hang Seng. Shinju Matsuri rekindles the excitement and romance of Broome’s early days of being a world-renowned producer of South Sea Pearls when the Japanese, Chinese, Malay, Koepangers, Filipino and Europeans flocked to Broome from the late 1800’s to be a part of this prosperity. This unique multicultural population of pearl industry workers joined with the local Aboriginal people and Europeans to work on up to 400 Pearling Luggers that sailed out of Broome.

Pearl Masters Dining Experience - Gatsby style

Broome EventBroome MusicShinju Matsuri
Monday, August 22, 2022 5:00pm - 10:00pm
$225pp
Sydney Cove Oyster Bar

As part of the Shinju Matsuri Festival team Sydney Cove Oyster Bar has created a menu that represents Broome's rich pearling days and the multicultural people that heavily influenced the towns cuisine from the early 1900’s onwards. Our five course menu has been inspired by the Malay, Chinese and Japanese cuisines with locally sourced produce that respects those early pioneering years. Join us for a pearling masters dinner as we attempt to recreate the sophistication and glamour of those balmy evenings when luggers returned with their bounty and the town celebrated.

Of course a special occasion like this needs live music and who better than the lovely Jaime Jackett and her band of 5 playing who are set to play a selection of modern day popular tunes made over in a swingin' roaring 20's jazz style.
