There will be plenty to mark off on the calendar in 2022 as the Bundaberg Region looks forward to a plethora of major events during the next 12 months.
Bundaberg Regional Council has secured dates for its annual major events hosted throughout the year, with plenty of favourites coming back to entertain the community.
Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said with borders reopened, 2022 was looking to be a positive year ahead with a great deal to celebrate.
He said the fun would begin soon when the community gets together for Australia Day.
“Kicking off the exciting events calendar will be the Australia Day celebrations, hosted again this year by the Rotary Club of Bundaberg City Daybreak,” he said.
“The team do such an amazing job at organising a wonderful, family-friendly event and I am sure this year will be no different.”
Cr Learmonth said in February, Chinese New Year would be hosted with the Year of the Tiger to be the theme of the month.
Then, at the end of July the Childers Festival will take place before Taste Bundaberg kicks off in August.
“These very popular events draw in crowds from near and far,” Cr Learmonth said.
“With food, festivities and fun on the agenda, mid-year of 2022 is sure to feature many amazing highlights so make sure you mark these dates down to avoid missing out!”
Turtles and local Indigenous culture will be celebrated when the Milbi Festival takes off in the region from 28 October to 6 November.
Then, from 1 December the Christmas program will be released with a variety of festive activities on the agenda.
Cr Learmonth said Bundaberg Regional Council was proud of its major events and looked forward to celebrating with the community across the coming months.
“Events like these help to bring the community together to celebrate all that's good in the region,” he said.
