Moore Park Beach is glorious one day and perfect the next, but the highlight is the Moore Park Beach Arts Festival held in August each year. Hordes of people, families, and friends gather at the coastal town to enjoy entertainment, arts, markets, local foods and fun activities for all. 

The showcase starts on Friday August 18 with a junior launch in the morning and art awards in the evening, and a main festival day is on Saturday.

Moore Park Beach Arts president Trish Mears said there were some exciting things planned for the event, in its 24th year.

“The original foundation of Moore Park Beach Arts Festival was to encourage the community, including children, to engage in the creation of art,” Trish said.

“The art competition is always a highlight, with new categories added this year, and the return of the school art competition sees the local children get excited to participate.

“We are expecting our biggest markets and food court offerings and have some big plans for stage entertainment and fun on the beach.”

Everyone is welcome at the Moore Park Beach Arts Festival, there really is something to enjoy for all ages. Head on down, enjoy the beach, the markets, the art and entertainment and stay for the fireworks finale.
