Noosa brings the Queens back to Queens-land and joins in the spirit of Mardi Gras with the Noosa Rainbow River Festival.
Partygoers celebrate with a weekend of festivities, kicking off with welcome cocktails by the river followed by Melony’s Drag Bingo on Noosa’s famous Gympie Terrace. Saturday features Noosa’s Mardi Gras Party, showcasing the Powderpuff Girls and the well-known DJ Les. Wrapping up on Sunday is the highlight of the weekend, the family-friendly River Parade and picnic, led by the fabulous Noosa Catalina.
Festival organiser Kirsty Patten:
“The Festival has something for everyone – from a family-friendly, BYO riverside picnic, through to a dance party with a drag performances”.
“We invite our visitors and the whole Noosa community to join us on the Noosa River for the famous annual River Parade. Hire a boat, bring your own boat or join the official Rainbow Party boat and party in the sun on a two-hour adventure up and down the Noosa River and canals”.
