Held from the 22nd to 25th July, the Childers Festival is an iconic destination event that tells the unique story of Childers through place, experience, spirit and culture.

Originally held over one day, the event has grown to a thrilling four day festival that embraces an appealing range of local activities, events and tours.

The festival culminates on Sunday 25 July, when the mighty Bruce Highway closes and over 300 food and market stalls line the historic Childers streets. 

Cuisine from all parts of the world will be complemented by an amazing array of market stalls.

In-between eating, shopping and browsing you will be entertained by a diverse range of music offerings, held across several stages. 

A variety of activities will be hosted leading up to the festival.

Experience a cane fire and tour around a local sugar mill, enjoy performances by leading Opera Queensland artists set against the stunning backdrop of a local lake.  

The Childers Festival is proudly presented by the Bundaberg Regional Council and we look forward to welcoming you to the only festival in Queensland that stops the mighty Bruce Highway!
