Einbunpin Festival Edition - Deagon Ward E-News

July 2018

This Sunday, Sandgate will draw crowds from near and far for the 27th annual Einbunpin Festival, held at Einbunpin Lagoon this sunday from 9am-4pm. This event is a great showcase for the Northside community.

We have over 160 local community and business stalls, live entertainment over four stages, and our bridge gallery stocked with pieces by local artists and residents.

Packed with all the hallmarks of a festival - face painting, mullet toss and egg and spoon races - this year's festival will be joined by some exciting new additions such as a Quidditch workshop. The festival will kick-off with an official opening and welcome to country at 8.45am in the Festival Arena.

For the first time this year we will also have a dedicated water refill station in the Festival Arena sponsored by Veolia, so please remember to bring your reusable water bottle to cut down on waste!

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers and sponsors who make this all possible. This is promising to be a great day and I hope to see you all there! 

The event program, which contains details of the different performances, can be found here.

Keep an eye out on my Facebook page to keep up to date with local news and events.

Einbunpin Festival Highlights

Egg & Spoon Races

The egg & spoon races are a highlight of the festival every year. Below is a flashback to last year's festival as Stirling Hinchliffe MP and I put ourselves to the test - there will no doubt be a rematch this year! Catch the races at 12.00pm in the Festival Arena. (See map below)

Mullet Toss

The mullet toss will be returning this year at 12.15pm in the Festival Arena for all ages. There is also a great selection of prizes, donated by local businesses, for all categories of contenders. Typically drawing a big crowd, this is an event you won't want to miss!



Performance Stages

There will be four different performance stages featuring artists, both local and from across Brisbane, of all ages. With almost 40 performances, ranging from our local school choirs to eclectic folk bands and everything in between, there is sure to be something for you. Consult the festival program fro specific times of each performance.
