Go back in time and celebrate at Innisfail’s Tropical Art Deco Festival

Locals are gearing up for this year’s Tropical Art Deco Festival starting next week when 1920s attire and vintage cars will be all the rage.

IT’S time for locals to dig out their best 1920s attire and get set to have some fun and frivolity as the Innisfail and District Historical Society’s five-day Tropical Art Deco Festival gets underway next week.

The festivities commence on Wednesday, September 15, with a variety of free and ticketed events, which run until Sunday, September 19.

Events on offer include a free mystery movie with champagne on arrival at the town library, the free screening of ‘The Great Gatsby’ movie at Warrina Lakes on Saturday night, and jazz music performances in Edith Street.

There is also an Art Deco Trivia Night, Moonlight Cemetery Walk, river cruises, and 1920 themed cocktail party at the Goondi Hotel, along with the Cancer Council Pink Ribbon event High Tea at the Johnstone Shire Hall on Saturday.

The Vintage Market and Great Gatsby Picnic on the riverfront in Jack Fossey Park on Sunday, September 19, round out the five-day festival.

Innisfail and District Historical Society’s Museum will be open during the festival for a closer look at Innisfail’s history and rich Art Deco heritage. 

Locals and visitors are encouraged to download the free app and do the Art Deco and Historic self-guided Town Walk around Innisfail’s CBD, as well as have a tour of the Johnstone Shire Hall to discover its history and stunning Art Deco architectural features.
