The always popular Dayboro Day Festival will be held together with Dayboro Antique & Collectable's Fair on Sunday 29th May 2016 and all are invited to come along and enjoy the many festivities.

The festival is now in its 25th year and event organisers have promised a jam-packed programme of exciting events, great family attractions, fun kids activities and a fantastic showcase of local food this year!

Entry is FREE for the Dayboro Day Festival, held between Williams and Heathwood Streets, Dayboro.

The day begins with a Combined Church Service at 8.00 am in the grounds of the Uniting Church in Williams Street. The Grand Street Parade commences at 10.00 am and is followed by the official opening and presentation of the Dayboro Community Awards by the Mayor, local Councillor, State Member, and Federal Member.

Throughout the afternoon, families can then enjoy a host of events, attractions and activities - highlights include:

  • 'Kids Passport to Fun' - Kids can collect their passport from the Dayboro Conversations Marquee and throughout the day visit 8 venues to have their Passport stamped and collect their 'treasure'.

    When complete, kids can place their passports in the marked box back at Roderick Cruice Stage. At 2.15 pm, 20 lucky entrants will be drawn and will each receive a $25 book voucher to choose their own prize from the book store.

  • 'Annual Pineapple Pie Eating Competition' - Who can devour a Pineapple Pie the fastest - without hands? Ten lucky (or maybe unlucky) contestants will be drawn from the entry box and then the fun begins!

  • All Day Entertainment! - the exciting entertainment line-up includes local musicians, bands, community groups and performance artists. Highlights include Juzzie Smith, KATO the Clown and Bumbles the Balloonatic!

    Families can also enjoy:

  • Watching a Waterless Raft Race
