Upwelling Festival Portland

The Upwelling Festival Portland is a creative, community celebration of the Bonney Upwelling, presented by the Rotary Club of Portland Bay.

This free, one-day event offers something for everyone. Community Art Projects, Live Music, Whale-boat races, Marine environment talks, Markets, and more.

The Bonney Upwelling is a unique and epic natural ocean phenomena where the spring winds shift to the south-east, driving a change in ocean currents that powers a seven month feeding frenzy of tuna, crayfish, giant crabs, squid, fish, seabirds, seals, krill and blue whales. An incredibly rich ecological food web, the Upwelling is at its greatest off the coast of Portland and is the cornerstone of the lucrative local fishing and tourism industry.
