1770 Festival

Community Event

21 May 2021 to 23 May 2021

UPDATE: unfortunately the difficult decision has been made to cancel the 1770 Festival in 2020. The team have been planning for this historical 250th commemorative event for many years and are saddened that their efforts will not come to fruition this year. However all is not lost, the team have started planning the 2021 event and already confirmed the dates 21 to 23 May 2021 for the official 1770 Festival weekend.

On the weekend closest to 23 and 24 May every year is the 1770 FESTIVAL. Why? Well, this is when the ‘HMB Endeavour’ anchored in Bustard Bay, Queensland, at what is now the Town of 1770.

There will be Cook’s landing re-enactment on the 1770 Foreshore; indigenous performances; Street Parade of themed floats; live music; fireworks; kids amusements; another fun Vanilla Slice War; food, retail and lifestyle stalls; fashion parade; interactive demonstrations and workshops for all ages.

Festival highlights include the things that Agnes Water and the Town of 1770 are best known for – Surfing, Fishing and Nature – with high profile personalities to match.
