Festival Cairns 

September

Held annually in September Festival Cairns is one of Australia’s leading regional cultural festivals.

With an action packed programme staged in the heart of Far North Queensland, the Festival is a showcase for the region both nationally and internationally.  This year we have over 40 events spanning music, sporting events, wining and dining and community theatre over a three-week period.

Established in 2002 Festival Cairns has quickly established a position as North Queensland’s premier event.

As Cairns becomes the stage of fun and festivities, the Festival harnesses the strengths of Cairns’ natural ambience, beautiful scenery, balmy spring weather and quality cultural and tourism attractions to create a unique festival experience.

From signature food and wine events and performances by guest national and international artists, to multi-cultural and community celebrations that showcase the region’s talent, Festival Cairns is a celebration of Tropical Australia’s diverse cultural life.

Ticketed events are complimented by a wide range of free outdoor performances including the Festival Finale which attracts an audience of around 40,000.
