Port Douglas Carnivale – cancelled due to COVID19

Proudly sponsored by the Douglas Shire Council, Port Douglas Carnivale celebrates the very best of Tropical North Queensland from the bounty of the sea, abundant fresh produce and world class wines, to talented local artists, musicians and performers.

Held in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and attracting tens of thousands of local, interstate and international visitors, Port Douglas Carnivale was originally held to mark the start of the sugar cane harvesting season, but is now considered the official opening of the tourism season.

A mecca for lovers of all things food, fun and sun, Carnivale is a must do on anyone’s bucket list.

Kicking off from May 22-24, 2020 this three-day festival is packed with music, fun and feasting from The Longest Lunch to Australia’s ultimate Seafood Extravaganza.
Enjoy the vibrant Macrossan Street Parade, Tropic Rock Concert and Four Mile Beach Family Beach Day or the wickedly naughty entertainment at the Wonderland Spiegeltent.

Bringing the local community and visitors together, Carnivale is proudly supported by the Douglas Shire CouncilTourism Port Douglas & Daintree and Tourism Events Queensland.
