Kuranda Colour Fest

September 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm AEST


Kuranda Colour Fest – Celebrating the Colours of Spring

It’s on again! After the enormous success of the inaugural Kuranda Colour Fest in 2022, the Kuranda Traders Association is hosting another day of colour and fun on Saturday 9 September 2023 to celebrate Spring. 

Kuranda Colour Fest kicks off at 10am in Centenary Park in Kuranda with free face painting and a giant inflatable slide for the kids. 

Look up high for visual and interactive entertainment with stilt walker, Ten Foot Tall Tanya, who will entertain the crowds as ‘Moko Jumbie’ at 10.15am – regarded as a protector whose towering heights made it easier to see evil before ordinary men. Then again at 12.15pm as ‘Red Jester’ – always cheeky and fun! 

There will also be two surprise performances in the park at 11am and 12 noon, DJ music throughout the day with JC, bubbles galore, plus local community stalls through until 2pm. 

The highlight of the event will be the free Colour Run at 2pm along the banks of the Barron River. Colour Run participants will meet Kuranda’s very own Fairy Jenny at 1.45pm in the park to form a parade and follow her to the starting line on the Barron River. The Colour Run features seven colour stations to run through over a course of approximately 500m. Lots of fun that comes with a warning…be prepared to be coloured! White t-shirts will be available for purchase in Centenary Park for Colour Run participants. 

Kuranda Colour Fest offers plenty of fun for all, plus the opportunity to visit Kuranda’s great attractions, markets and specialty stores. 

Make a day of it and get coloured in Kuranda!
