Now in its 22nd year, the Bluewater Festival celebrates the start of the flagship Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race on Good Friday, 19 April 2019. After the starter's gun has sounded to the 71st Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, the boats will follow a 308 nautical miles course to land adjacent to Spinnaker Park in the Gladstone Harbour.

From land, visitors can watch the flotilla of boats skip along the water from the landmark Shorncliffe Pier while also sampling a host of free activities and entertainment.

Watch out for:
Food Fiesta
Markets and Information Stalls
Amusement Rides, Sideshow Alley and a Trackless Train
Kids Animal Farm and Pony Rides
Free Kids Art Workshops. Find the Red Teepee on the Shorncliffe beachfront and create wind socks and lanterns with Kim Mancini

So get along to the Shorncliffe Pier and Moora Park, Sandgate for this year's Bluewater Festival 2019. The Festival is hosted by the Sandgate and Districts Chamber of Commerce.
