Mary Poppins Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

1 Jul 2021 to 4 Jul 2021 Annual Event

This year’s Festival presents a four day program of storytelling for all ages through all art forms. From music concerts backstage and onstage at the Brolga to pop up performances in the Bond Store Basement.

The signature event is the Mary Poppins Festival Day in the Park where Maryborough’s glorious heritage streetscapes are transformed into scenes from the Poppins novels.

Nannies race each other pushing prams in the great Nanny Challenge, chimney sweeps compete in the Chimney Sweep Dash while Mary Poppins characters come to life from the pages of books and mingle with the crowd.

The festival honours the author of the Mary Poppins books, Pamela Lyndon Travers, who was born Helen Lyndon Goff in an upstairs bedroom of the former Australian Joint Stock Bank building in Maryborough on 9 August 1899. The bank is now an interactive museum called the Story Bank of Maryborough, which will feature prominently in the festival.
