Qld Day Poster


An afternoon of celebrations that reflects the unique culture, heritage and aspirations of our community.  The 'Street Party Style 'event will feature:

  • Food & Entertainment
  • Artisan Markets
  • Workshops
  • Exhibitions

Queensland Day is an important celebration of our State’s culture and heritage, and an opportunity to reflect on what Queensland means to you and what makes you proud to be a Queenslander - whether it be our people, places, opportunities or lifestyle.


Are you a local creative, farmer or food vendor who has hand-made, hand-crafted, up-cycled goods/wares to sell or ready to eat food, then we want you to showcase your wares!  The Queensland Day - Celebrating Faces and Places of Charters Towers, will feature live music and entertainment with a great family friendly vibe, and we want you to join us.

Please note the event location is on undulating bitumen with no power available – lighting will be sufficient (through the use of light towers).

No application fee for Market Stalls.
