Carnivale Port Douglas 2021

Port Douglas couldn’t be more excited to welcome back the wonderful Carnivale this May 2021! The community really missed this one-of-a-kind event when it was cancelled in 2020, so we are totally on the edge of our seats to experience what Carnivale has in store this year.

If you have had the pleasure of visiting Tropical North Queensland you have probably already heard of Carnivale, and if you are local, you will know and love some of the returning favourite events. We will see the magic of Wonderland Spiegeltent Circus and Cabaret, Family Beach Day, the iconic Macrossan Street Parade and the fabulous Longest Lunch events again in 2021 and of course, we cannot wait!

There’s more to come yet… there is such an impressive array of experiences for you to discover this year in FNQ. For starters, watch a thrilling show of pro wrestling during Carnivale Carnage or sign up for guided SUP tours and kitesurfing lessons with Windswell.

You might also like to run for a fundraiser 5km on Four Mile Beach, view an outstanding art exhibition by Tim Ellis, or enjoy fantastic music during the Picnic in the Park event or Spider Bait’s performance! Better yet, your dog can join in on the fun too with the Dogs Day Out where there are plenty of prizes to win.
