Hills Carnivale

Hills Carnivale - CANCELLED
Sat 28 May 12pm-7pm


It is with deep regret that event organisers have had to cancel the upcoming Hills Carnivale scheduled for Saturday, 28 May at George Wilmore Park.

After recent heavy and continuous rain falls, moisture tests were conducted and it was concluded that running the event would cause significant and long-lasting damage to the park. At this stage, even several days of sun would not be sufficient to allow for the event to proceed without causing damage to the park.

The Hills Carnivale team apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment caused. There are a number of Hills Festival events still planned to occur over the coming days, for further information please visit Week 4 events here 👇https://www.hillsfestival.com....

We look forward to bringing more events to the local community in the future – to find out what’s happening near you, visit our newest events guide, What's on Moreton Bay and sign up to receive our regular events guide direct to your inbox 👇 https://www.whatsonmoretonbay....


Hills Carnivale brings to a close four weeks of incredible events as part of the Hills Festival. The annual Hills Carnivale on May 28 at George Willmore Park is a free entry event with a whole host of activities for little kids and big kids alike.

For one day only, enjoy a jam-packed entertainment program split between two stages – with one stage specifically catering just for the little ones in our designated Kids Zone!

Kids will have lots to keep them busy with amusement rides, workshops and games, and roving entertainers to enjoy. Mum and Dad can wander through the dozens of lifestyle markets and multicultural food stalls while enjoying the talents of our local musical acts.

Start your weekend off right and be sure to stake your spot early in preparation for the 7pm fireworks finale!

See you at the 2022 Hills Carnivale!


Due to the large crowds which our event draws each year, we strongly recommend patrons to consider using public transport to access Hills Carnivale. Bus #398 stops at the front of George Wilmore Park, and this service links with Ferny Grove Train Station. To plan your journey using public transport, please visit Translink's Journey Planner here.
