Ride the Wave Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

28 Apr 2023 to 30 Apr 2023 Annual Event

The Ride the Wave Festival established in 2021 has become an annual fundraising event for Make A Difference PMQ (M.A.D) that showcases the region to the wider community whilst advocating for the disadvantaged and marginalised.

They are excited to team up with Surfing NSW, the NSW Government and Port Macquarie Hastings Council to bring the Ride the Wave Festival to Port Macquarie once again.

In 2023 the festival will include the Ride the Wave Junior Pro which will showcase some of the best boys and girls Surfers from Under 12s to Under 18s and a Skate competitions for keen skaters with both boys and girls divisions.

In addition, Ride the Soundwave runs alongside the Surf and Skate competition. This as a ticketed music festival which includes free market stalls, food vendors and family activities in the skate park precinct. A special addition to this festival is the over 18s “Barrel Room” beer garden provided within the ticketed Ride the Soundwave area.

100% of the entry fees will be donated to the “Make a Difference Mobile Food Van Service” to support people experiencing homelessness.

Follow their social media pages and keep an eye on web page updates for information regarding the Ride the Wave Festival.
