The 2018 Childers Festival, on the last weekend in July, is the only festival in Queensland that stops a highway, closing the mighty Bruce Highway!

With free admission both days, the event kicks off on the Saturday afternoon from 2pm with a street party and lively bands performing well into the night. The main festival day, which closes the Bruce Highway is on the Sunday, kicking off from 9am to 3.30pm and features five stages of non-stop music, hundreds of market stalls and a smorgasbord of food from all over the world.
