13 Feb Calliope River Village Festival!
The Calliope River Historical Village is very excited to bring a brand new music festival to Gladstone on August 22nd! Revel in the richness of our region’s history while enjoying live music, local food and beverage vendors, workshops, local stalls and so much more! There will also be free camping available along the picturesque Calliope River.
The highly-talented Adam Harvey and Jack Viljoen are sure to delight you in the evening while you’re exploring the event and enjoying the festivities. Walk-up musicians and those who would like to host workshops are invited to put their names down too.
The Calliope River Historical Village itself is known for being host to a wealth of wondrous history including historical buildings and artefacts. Colin and Cheryl Druery took over management of the Calliope River Historical Village four years ago and have since been welcoming members of the community to explore local history with tours, markets and events.
“The village is here to promote local history. Families can come and learn about the history and actually see the displays. We have unique pieces here like nowhere else in Gladstone,” Colin said.
“The music festival will help to promote and encourage the community to take more of an interest in local history and help to preserve it for generations to come,” Cheryl said.
So, those who are yet to venture down to the beautiful, historic grounds of the Calliope River Historical Village be sure to check out the incredible venue and have a tour of the area before the music festival!
