Show Me Some Art Street Party

With thanks to the amazing community and businesses for their sponsorship, the Show Me Some Art Festival is back for 2024!

This year we bring you a new location in the Moe CBD. Located in the carpark behind the Moe RSL and Town Hall, you will find the same amazing vibe of live music, market stalls, food vans, kids entertainment and much more.

Coming into the CBD, we have the pleasure of showcasing the local Street Art, new and old. So keep those eyes peeled!

Not only do we have our Street Party, but our popular Colour Fun Run will too take place in the picturesque Moe Botanic Gardens earlier in the day so you don’t miss a thing.

Tom Curtain Music

Tom Curtain is a nationally acclaimed singer/ songwriter. This tour coincides with the release of his fifth studio album Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us – the first release of this album “Why We Live Out Here” has had great success, remaining in the Country Songs Australian Airplay Chart for 10 months. His last album We’re Still Here debuted at No.1 on the Australian Country Music Charts with all four singles released from the album also going to No.1. 

In 2018 Tom won two Golden Guitar Awards for his single “Never Never Land”, a duet with Luke O’Shea. Tom was also awarded the prestigious 2018 Australian Independent Country Music Artist of the Year Award together with Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (Territory Time) and Single of the Year(“Never Never Land”) at the Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music Awards.  

Tom is also an official ambassador of Dolly’s Dream. Moved by the tragic passing of Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett, who took her young life after being relentlessly cyber-bullied, Tom put pen to paper and released the single “Speak Up” with Sara Storer. To date, over $35,000 has been raised by the Katherine Outback Experience and Outback Productions through the sale of the song and branded shirts. These donations are used to provide useful and powerful tools for schools, children and family members (www.dollysdream.org.au) to fight online bullying.

Katherine Outback Experience

Owned and operated by Tom Curtain, Katherine Outback Experience (KOE) is an outback show that celebrates life on the land through real horse-starting and working dog demonstrations entwined with live music and humorous bush tales. KOE has won multiple awards over many years – most recently:

  • 2022 Silver at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards: Best Tourist Attraction
  • 2022 Winner of the Brolga NT Tourism Award: Best Tourist Attraction
  • 2021 Winner of the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards: Best Tourist Attraction
  • 2021 Winner of the Brolga NT Tourism Award: Best Tourist Attraction
  • 2021 Winner of the Brolga NT Chairman’s Choice Award for Tourism Excellence

The show is based in Katherine from April to the end of October over the ‘Dry Season’ months.  Over the Wet Season summer months, the team hit the road, touring the Outback Show in conjunction with Tom’s music.
