Festival committee member Amanda McGinley said it's a two-and-a-half-day free, family-friendly event that illustrates the work of talented artists from the Bundaberg Region and beyond.

“It really is a fantastic family day out,” Ms McGinley said.

“If you have been thinking about entering your artwork don’t delay, the festival is accepting entries now.”

Ms McGinley said the festival would begin on Friday, 16 August with the grand opening night and judging of the arts competition.

“There will be a fantastic range of cash prizes up for grabs in all categories which vary from textiles to photography to watercolour and everything in between,” she said.

The party ramps up on Saturday with two huge free community festival days at the Moore Park Beach Oval.

“Festival days includes market stalls, art exhibitions, workshops and a fantastic line-up of live entertainment throughout the day from some of Bundaberg's best musicians,” Ms McGinley said.

“There will be a very special headline act soon to be announced and don’t forget the fireworks on Saturday night for everyone to enjoy.

“This year, the festival will have an added feature, a Pacific Island Village, allowing event-goers to embrace and experience the cultural diversity of the region with a unique interactive display by the Ol Meri Wantok group, an organisation that promotes the cultural arts and craft of the South Pacific Island Nations.”
