The 2020 Rockhampton River Festival will be coming to Rockhampton on 24-26 July.

We are monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 virus carefully.


The Prime Minister formally announced on Sunday 15th of March that all non-essential, organised gatherings of more than 500 people will be banned from Monday 16th March 2020.


While discussions are currently taking place, Rockhampton Regional Council has not made any decisions about the upcoming  event due to be held 24-26 July 2020.


We are continuing to monitor the situation and will comply with the latest government health advice as the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve.


Rockhampton Regional Council would like to thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.   Our priority is of the health and safety of the community and urge everyone to look out for friends and family in the following weeks and months ahead.
