The festival was organised by Council's Community Development Section and incorporated the Townsville City Council Environment Awards which were organised by Environmental Management Services.

The aim of the Festival is to hold a great day out in the park with the whole family. The festival supports local environmental organisations and displays new or alternative and sustainable technologies in the Environmental Expo. It aims to raise awareness amongst the community of environmental issues. This was Eco Fiesta's 15th year and past festivals have attracted approximately 6,000 people during the 4 hours.

Eco Fiesta is interactive, fun and entertaining with something for everyone:

  • An Environmental Expo showcasing the numerous environmental community groups and businesses in the area.

  • A variety of fun, interactive workshops for children and adults.

  • An exciting stage program with local bands performing a variety of musical styles over the course of the day.

  • A range of food and drinks on sale.

  • Environmental Excellence Awards
