The award winning festival includes a foreshore re-enactment event at dusk on Friday 25 May 2018, followed by two full days of entertainment at the SES Grounds on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May 2018.

The Saturday street parade of floats and community groups is a popular and also free family event for everyone. Gates to the SES Grounds festival site open after this parade and the whole family will be entertained by live performances, market stalls, Indigenous dancing and exciting amusement rides, with a spectacular fireworks display on Saturday night.
