Event Information

Paying homage to what has become Australia’s foremost regional Community Arts and Cultural Festival, Noosa Long Weekend Festival director; Ian Mackellar has once again pulled out all stops to assemble the best of local, national and international talent across a multi-faceted program to be presented in Noosa from July 15 to July 24.

True to the festival’s reputation of delivering world class events and something for everyone, this year’s program encompasses a wide range of entertainment options including music, dance, theatre, cabaret, film, food, literature, a festival of thought, events for the kids, some terrific workshops, a new inclusion LOCALE after DARK and an opening Carnivale infused parade embracing the community and visitors in celebration of our 15th year!

This year’s Hastings Street Carnivale parade will include street musicians, performers, stilt walkers, jugglers, dancing girls and an abundance of feathers! With more colour and movement than you could imagine, the parade will conclude on Noosa Beach with a spectacular Twilight Skydiving display finale with Super Heroes jumping and soft landing onto Noosa beach amongst other festive surprises.

Following our opening spectacular and with the festival officially declared ‘OPEN’, patrons who have purchased tickets will head off to THE J theatre to delight in our opening act, the internationally celebrated Queen of Cabaret, MEOW MEOW, direct from her critically acclaimed appearance as Titania in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ @ Shakespeare’s Globe theatre in London. MEOW MEOW also opened the 2016 Sydney Festival to a series of sold out shows – we have her for one night only, so don’t miss out!
