The Port Douglas Carnivale normally is held in April every year. This year I will be taking my family and I’ll be sharing my mini holiday with you.
I love The Port Douglas Carnivale, it’s such a fantastic event. It’s an event that you could either take your kids and have a nice family weekend away; or you can make it a “date weekend” with hubby.
This year we’re going up as a family and here’s our schedule: *(Tip take notes of our schedule as it will be the bases of my next giveaway which is a Sunset Sail Trip)
Friday 17th May
We’re heading up on the Friday afternoon and we”ll be attending the “Street Parade” – Free Event
It’s starts at 4pm with entertainment, music, street theatre, markets stalls, rides and amusements. So we will be there as early as we possibly can, we don’t want to miss a thing! The the street parade starts at 7 pm followed by Fireworks at 9pm
Saturday 18th Of May
We’ll be heading to the ”The Carnivale Beach Day” – Free Event
The day starts at 6am, with a series of holistic activities including Meditation, Yoga and Tai Chi. I would love to go the that, but I reckon I may be snoring in bed.
There will be a dedicated Kids Fun Zone sandcastle competition, treasure hunt and giant water slide, as well as the market place serving food, refreshments and gifts on the Esplanade.
Local buskers, art happenings, pony rides and street theatre performers will be all over the beach, and there will even be a skydiving display! so come along, join in and celebrate with the local community on this happy, creative and energetic day of fun. Saturday night , We’re having the kids minded and we’re getting all “dressed up” to attend the outdoor food and wine festival.

You will find me relaxing by the pool, with a cocktail in hand listening to smooth grooves at QT there will also have punch jugs and local and imported beers, all served alongside yummy food offerings including wood fired pizzas, and specialised spit roast on the lawn.
