The 2008 Sandgate Bluewater Festival supports and surrounds the annual Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, which leaves from the Sandgate Pier every Good Friday, the Bluewater Festival brings a wide array of cultural events and attracts thousands of people from the greater Brisbane area. And, with your help, we will make the festival bigger and better than ever before. Since its inception in 1997, the popular annual festival has grown to become one of Sandgate’s premier events, and indeed one of Brisbane’s most talked about festivals.

The Sandgate district is proud to claim the Phoenix Fire Tribe as locals, and this year the sought after performers will once gain enthrall the crowds with their daring fire twirling and drumming. Then of course the spectacular fireworks display and dancing to The Fabulous Sounds of the 60’s Show.

Events planned for Good Friday include seaside craft and food markets with carnival rides in Lower Moora Park. On going entertainment from the Bay Stage throughout the day.

This year, the committee has a lot more planned for the entire Bluewater week.
