Great Barrier Reef Festival is an annual celebration of the Great Barrier Reef and showcase of the Whitsunday lifestyle and community in the "heart of the reef" – Airlie Beach. The region's favourite festival will celebrate 21 years in 2021 and will take over the vibrant tourist hub of Airlie Beach. The 4-day event is a delicious combination of family fun, reef focused environmental and art initiatives, destination events, local food and culture and some of the biggest parties in the tropical north. The 2021 festival will feature a fun-filled program of events including the Coral Sea Marina Resort Lantern Parade, Great Barrier Reef interactive workshops and installations, a Comedy Gala, massive reef-themed street parade, main streetcar show, a wearable art parade and Recyclable Regatta and free family fun activities on Airlie Foreshore. The not-to-be-missed Fireworks on the Foreshore event will ignite the skies on Friday Aug 6, the biggest night on the Whitsunday calendar, complete with night markets, food stalls, carnival rides and street performers and the popular Pop-up Beach Bar. The Beach Music stage will be pumping out live entertainment throughout the weekend with a fantastic line-up of artists soon to be announced.
