Mackay Mazda Festival of Arts


The Mackay Festival of Arts is a celebration of all things art and culture and traditionally runs over a two-week period, in locations right across Mackay.

The Festival includes artistic shows and performances, art exhibitions, a food and wine day, jazz brunch, gourmet food trails, lunchbox concerts and more.

The program has been running for over three decades and continues to grow each year.

Hot tip: grab a copy of the Festival of Arts program, always released at least a few weeks prior to the Festival, to ensure you don’t miss any of your favourite performances or events; you may be required to book early.

Selfie Spot: the Food and Wine Day is always a great day out in the sun enjoying the entertainment, fun, colour and festivities, so grab your mates and get snapping!

Hot tip: the progressive dinner is a growing trend and visits some of the most prestigious dining spots in Mackay. Be quick to secure a ticket!
