Release your inner child at exclusive River Revery events!
It’s not just the kids who get to have all the fun. Dream, Wander, Play and Feast your way back to childhood at one of six ticketed events.
Merging whimsical and theatrical styling with sophistication, imaginative food, wine and live music, The Big uTOPia tent will feature five special ticketed events that will add some glitz to the riverside as part of the Rockhampton River Festival from July 15-17.
This year’s theme River Revery encourages festival goers to escape the ordinary, and the line-up of ticketed events is no exception.
The Big uTOPia tent will be an eye-catching structure playing host to aerial acrobatics and performance art alongside theatrical food at events such as the Fairytale Frolic, Saturday Specter and more.
Regional Promotions Manager Sarah Reeves said after the enormous success of 2015, this year’s festival needed to go above and beyond people’s expectations to capture that same magical feel.
“This year we are going the extra mile with the creative, and adding new events including a special children only tea party and a gourmet grazing breakfast on the Sunday.”
Friday and Saturday night events also feature a front row seat to the production of SPECTER – an aerial artistry performance based on a storyline about mystic creatures, entwining theatre, acrobatics, aerial art & dance, showcasing the talent that lies within Rockhampton.
All events will be accompanied by a talented musical line-up, featuring live musicians from across the country as well as local home grown artists.
