Babinda Harvest Festival

Babinda Harvest Festival


If you are in the Cairns region on 7th October, don't miss the Babinda Harvest Festival.

From a festival first held in 1962 to celebrate the start of the sugarcane harvest, this event has grown into an affair offering great food, fun, and entertainment for the whole family.

Babinda Harvest Festival Fun For The Whole Family

Be sure to arrive for the grand parade, which starts at 3.30pm.

Harking back to its roots, you’ll see vintage cane-farming machinery makes its way down the main street, alongside colourful floats from schools, sports groups, local businesses and community organisations.

Once the parade ends, at approximately 4.30pm, the gates to Bill Wakeham park will officially open.

The kids can then go nuts on the rides and face painting.

There is also a display of local art in the pavilion, live entertainment, and a range of market stalls.

And there are good news for foodies?

With the expansion of the event, even more food stalls have also been added. Expect wood-fired pizza, cannoli, and ice cream vans offering up delish delights made with fresh, local produce. Lovingly homemade jams, spreads and cakes will also be on offer.

Stay a bit longer  to watch the fireworks at 9.00pm... a spectacular way to end to the day.
