Childers Festival
a Multicultural Event

In 2015 we will celebrate the 20th Childers Festival.  We look forward to welcoming you to the only festival in Queensland that stops the mighty Bruce Highway!

Childers is a quintessential Queensland country town located 40 minutes south west of Bundaberg, 2.5 hours north of Noosa and 3.5 hours north of Brisbane.

During the weekend our town swells to nearly 40,000 people with non-stop multicultural music and entertainment, hundreds of market stalls and a smorgasbord of food.

FREE ADMISSION both days, it kicks off on Saturday afternoon from 2:00pm well into the night and Sunday, the main festival day, from 9:00am to 3:30pm.

This year there will be a host of other activities happening before and during the festival. Be sure to check them out or book them by clicking on tabs to the right or by going to the Schedule of Events.
