Gardening and Lifestyle Events

Mary Poppins Festival

The Mary Poppin’s Festival returned to the historical streetscapes of Maryborough on Sunday 3 July 2022.

The 2023 date is yet to be confirmed.

In 2021 the Festival presented a 4 day program of storytelling for all ages through all art forms. From music concerts backstage and onstage at the Brolga to pop up performances in the Bond Store Basement. The signature event was the Mary Poppins Festival Day in the Park where Maryborough’s glorious heritage streetscapes were transformed into scenes from the Poppins novels. Nannies raced each other pushing prams in the great Nanny Challenge, chimney sweeps competed in the Chimney Sweep Dash while Mary Poppins characters came to life from the pages of books and mingle with the crowd.
