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.
