Cairns is a great place for a tropical holiday, and the first week of May 2021 is a superb time to visit. As though the warmth of a tropical autumn leading soon to a pleasant winter wasn't enough, there are memorable events occurring in Cairns during May. I've outlined a small number of the entertainment events in Cairns this May, as mentioned on Entertainment Cairns.

This list has 21 unique events - with the event linked at the start of each entry with a short description beside it. I've sourced the nearing week one of May events to give all readers added reasons to support tourism there, to give a concept on a week's worth of entertainment events in the Far North, and to promote events in the region. This list is just a hint experimental but hopefully, it makes it easy or improves the concept when it comes to finding outgoing entertainment options in Cairns. I realise that May 2021 begins on a weekend (Saturday), therefore kicking off the week's events in a notable and stylish manner, with events listed below:

Saturday, 1st of May:

Volcanic Rock: a night of some of FNQ's finest rock bands hosted at Atherton International Club

Lino Cutting with visual artist Lauren Jaye Carter, repeated the following Saturday, promoted by Inkmasters, Cairns.

Toni Childs Retrospective by the artist herself at Edge Hill.
