Format

The main stage adjacent to the foreshore will be the entertainment hub of the festival with presentations of live music, dancing, competitions and cultural activities. Beyond the main stage area there will be several rows of market style exhibitor marquees, food stalls, carnival rides and exhibits. A licensed bar area will serve drinks from a marquee in an area near the main stage, along with our new Boutique Beverages Pavilion where you will be able to taste a range of wines, craft beers and cocktails.


Additional special activities will be held in various venues around Ceduna including the Ceduna Foreshore Hotel and the Ceduna Memorial Hall. One of the festival highlights will be a fireworks spectacular on Sunday lighting up the night sky above Murat Bay. The festival will operate on Saturday from 11am till 11pm and Sunday from 11am till 11pm. Entry is free to all patrons.


There will be a program of entertainment scheduled for the main stage throughout the day that will include live music, competitions, cultural and dance exhibitions from local, regional and Australian artists.
