9-15 November

Bulimba Festival has been reinvented for 2015. This year it will run for a week commencing Monday 9 November until Sunday 15 November. During the course of the week we will showcase the many different aspects of life in Bulimba that draws people from all over the world to call this bend in the river “home”. There will be a series of events that make up the Bulimba Festival from movie nights, to pet parades, to art installations through to our headline event Lunch on the Lawn on Sunday 15 November in the Memorial Park.

Bulimba Festival Launch

Bulimba Festival will launch appropriately from Bulimba Ferry Terminal at 9am on Monday 9 November.  The festival will begin with funky blend of community, music and art with a gift from the Bulimba Festival Team to Bulimba.

Tasting Tuesday

Tasting Tuesday is a new innovation for the 2015.  From breakfast until dinner our Festival Friends will offer foodies a tasting dish to try different restaurants and cafes accompanied by matching wines where appropriate.

 

Remembrance Wednesday

Remembrance Wednesday will honour those who have sacrificed their lives for us with an installation of 97 Poppies in the Park created by Saltie Craft and volunteers – one poppy for each year since the First World War.

 

Truck into Thursday

Thursday is packed full of great activities as we hit the downhill slope to the weekend:  skateboarding and hip hop workshops; Truck in at Oxford 152 with awesome food trucks and dancing in the dark with No Lights No Lycra.

 

Festival Friday

Bulimba is famous for it’s cinema and we celebrate our movie addiction with a special festival Movies in the Park for grown-ups courtesy of Cr Shayne Sutton. We’ll be screening “Muriel’s Wedding” so dig out your bridesmaid dresses or Abba satin with prizes for the most ‘terrible’ outfit!

 

River Regatta

This year we launch our first River Regatta. Join us in the bend in the river at the end of Quay Street to experience outriggers, pilates, sailing races, kids fun, the Bulimba Vet Pet Parade and live music at Bulimba Golf Club.
