Carnivale to celebrate 25 years in 2019

The Port Douglas Carnivale crowd-pleaser has been locked in for another three years as Douglas Shire Council kicks off preparations to mark the event’s 25th Anniversary.    

Council has endorsed a draft program for Carnivale 2019 that will focus on the core foundation events – the street parade, family beach day and Tropic Rock concert – in a bid to celebrate the essence of Port Douglas. 

Council will also enter into an agreement with Wonderland Entertainment and Leisure Pty Ltd to provide the Wonderland Spiegeltent until 2021. 

Douglas Shire Council Mayor Julia Leu said “Silver and Sunshine” was the proposed 2019 festival theme to celebrate the significant 25-year milestone. 

“Carnivale 2019 will be dynamic and attractive festival designed to appeal to the regional FNQ market through a fantastic mix of free and ticketed events,” she said.
