Non-stop fun and entertainment for all the family!

Three Stages providing entertainment for young and old featuring the best of our local talent. The Main Stage featuring a great lineup of bands and singers: The Royal Stage, where it really "Rocks" and The Telstra Stage show-casing our local Dance Schools, Bands and Dramatic Groups.
Each year nominations are accepted and a worthy recipient is selected to receive our Volunteer of the Year Award. The 2018 award went to Margaret Smith for her lifelong service to our community.

The fun is not only on the stages. Street performers are invited to appear throughout the day, whether it is stilt-walking, magic, street theatre or busking. 2018 saw our local circus school Zany Yare showing their skills.
Fun for all the Kids!
