Cairns Festival just one month away

The 2010 Cairns Festival runs from 20 August to 5 September.

This year it will offer hundreds of opportunities to celebrate our creative community and unique sense of place in tropical Australia.

The vision is simple...
  • "To deliver a quality, vibrant, progressive and collaborative, arts festival - highly reflective and engaged with the community; to seek greater regional and national recognition of our cultural identity; to tell our unique stories and celebrate our distinctive, tropical lifestyle.

The programme, and hundreds of great creative opportunities, will make this year's festival even better. The Festival will be held at locations all over the region.

"Expect a bounty of great free and family events, an incredible culinary arts program, a host of international productions and performers," says Festival co-ordinator, Eric Holowacz. "There's also challenging array of local works and cultural representation projects to unfold over our 17 day celebration, from the Tanks Arts Centre to the Civic Theatre; and from the Esplanade to Palm Cove, Cairns Festival will offer something for everyone."

The festival is backed by Cairns Regional Council and many local businesses.
