IMPORTANT EVENT ROAD CLOSURE INFORMATION
Planning for Rockhampton’s signature annual event is now underway. A mix of art exhibitions, cultural activities, entertainment and market vendors will be located across Quay Street and Quay Lane.
For the safety of the community and event organisers, a number of road closures and traffic management changes will be required ahead of, during and after this year’s Festival.
To minimise inconvenience to businesses and residents, road closures will be in effect for the minimal amount of time as safely possible, with roads closed and reopened in stages.
