The Burdekin's abundant water supply is celebrated each year at this much-loved festival. It is one of the longest running festivals in Queensland, with the first festival being held on 6 September 1958. The celebrations include a wide variety of exciting events that encompass the whole community.
The three month-long program of events kicks off with Tastes of the Burdekin in July - an outdoor food festival with an international flavour. The festivities culminate in a street parade and mardi gras in Ayr's Central Business District on 6 September. The colourful floats are always a big drawcard, especially those bearing the festival ambassador entrants.
