Kin Kin will certainly be the place to be on Sunday 17th October.

An event filled day is promised based on traditional country fairs, incorperating the:

Queensland Champion Woodchop Event,

Great Teams Challenge,
Market Stalls,
Novelty Events and Whipcracking

The Kin Kin Carnival takes pride in offering a great day out without draining the family budget. Generous support and sponsorship from many businesses and individuals allows the carnival to continue with its policy of FREE children's entertainment all day.

Gate entry prices also reflect this value with:
Family ticket entry only $12.00.

With any day out to the Kin Kin Carnival, there are always surprises. This year some famous local musical talents will thrill and amaze all ages. One of our Kin Kin international artisans, Steve Weiss who works in metal, will be showcasing his recently completed "Sound Garden" - a sculptural experience which will keep you thinking long after the day is over.
The Kin Kin Challenge will again be a feature event with $1000 prize money to the winning team.
