About Us | Rockhampton River Festival

Like an artery

The Fitzroy River has been the lifesource for the people of Central Queensland since the time of the Dreaming. In a celebration of its glory, and its strength to support the community, Rockhampton Regional Council launched Rockhampton River Festival in 2014. 

The three-day celebration leverages the riverbank’s stunning natural and built heritage to forge fond and fun memories in the minds of many. The festival will embrace these foundations to offer more arts, culture, entertainment, food and enjoyment for visitors.

The 2021 Bravus Rockhampton River Festival runs 22-24 October at the following times: 

Friday 22 October 2021 | 5pm - 10pm
Saturday 23 October 2021 | 10am - 10pm
Sunday 24 October 2021 | 10am - 7pm
