Arts Festival

Each year we come together as a community in August to celebrate art, fun, and beauty.In fact, the Moore Park Beach Arts Inc. Festival has been running for 21 years, thanks to dedicated volunteers and artists.

Friday heralds the festival’s official opening, highlighting junior artists and school art awards, followed by the awards night. Then Saturday is when all the fun and exploration happens. From workshops to art prizes and awards, market stalls, entertainment, food stalls, and so much more, the Bundaberg  region (and beyond!) community looks forward to driving to Moore Park Beach yearly for the Moore Park Beach Arts Festival.

To become a stall holder, book a food site or workshop, volunteer, or make any other enquiries, please contact us. Alternatively, check out our past festivals, and complete program.
