Noosa will be brought alive with fire twirling, jugglers, musicians, stilt walkers, clowns, fire shows and much more.

The best thing… it's fun and it's FREE!!

See you there!!

The festival this year will showcase the talents of local, national and international artists from 31st Oct to the 7th Nov. Busking circles will be set up in Lions Park and in the Noosa Heads Surf Club Car Park and will be operative during the day from the 5th -7th Nov, plus roving artists will be occurring over the same weekend along Hastings Street. For the major street performing event, Council has planned a fire show to occur at the Triathlon's Street Festival on the Friday night of the 5th Nov, a 30min spectacular show performed on the beach by Phoenix Fire Troupe.

Tri + Street Theatre

Street performers are being invited to participate in the Noosa Triathlon - not as ironmen and women but as buskers, adding even more colour to the streets and entertaining the crowds thronging to view the programme of top sporting activities from October 31st to November 7th.

It will be a happy marriage between the Triathlon and Noosa's second annual Street Performance Festival, combining sport and culture to show off the Noosa flair and expertise at having fun.

Entertainment will be on tap for the young and the young at heart, with fire twirlers, jugglers, magicians, stilt walkers and clowns amongst the street performers.
The highlight of the week will be the Street Carnivale on the evening of Friday, November 5th, with buskers, street performers and bands and, appropriately for Guy Fawkes Day, a beach fire show on Noosa Main Beach at around 8.00.

By paying a $15 permit fee, buskers will be authorised to strut their stuff and make some money, in the streets of the Shire and also at special locations to be determined by Council's Events staff. One such venue will be a Bucking Circle within the Festival Village at the Noosa Heads Lions Park and another in a central position in Hastings Street. Street performers should contact Council's Events Office on 5449 5100 for registration and further details.

The Festival will also feature magic and performance workshops in Noosa Woods and Street Theatre workshops in local schools.
