“Mona Foma is easily one of the country’s finest festivals; it’s inclusive and welcoming, extremely well thought out and considered, and it’s the finer details that bring it all together in one pretty excellent package.”

“The event has been a success on every level – from the much talked about Air Mofo experience through to the incredible performances, installations and even Parer Studio’s inflatable “Man” at the Gorge – bringing a new audience to the city (I wasn’t the only one visiting for the first time because of the event), and ensuring positive word of mouth will only grow these visitors year on year.”

The AU Review, 2019
Brigid Delaney

“So, are Mona Foma and Launceston a good match? As Kevin Costner once said, build it and they will come.”
