All through the Carnivale from about 11am til 7pm Monday to Friday, Port Village Shopping Centre in the heart of Port Douglas’ Macrossan Street is hosting the Street Art and Performers Festival. This festival guarantees a lively Carnivale atmosphere all day every day on the streets of Port Douglas. Each day the street musicians, performers and artists will sing and dance from a diverse range of musical styles and perform a wide array of street theatre and the street artists will adorn our sidewalks bringing their artworks to life. We will hear jazz, folk, country, rock’n’roll, modern, some acoustic and some electric and many of the songs will be original compositions. It will be our very own ‘Portstock’.
All through the week our event managers will choose their favourites and invite them to perform on the last Saturday of Carnivale in a Village Market Day Finale here at Port Village Shopping Centre so that the huge crowds enjoying the market can be entertained by the very best of the best. Most of these street performers dedicate themselves to their art so if you enjoy their show, just drop a few pennies in the hat for the performers, it’ll make their day too! This feast of talent will perform throughout the day and a winner will be chosen at the Saturday Market Grand Final to hail as The Carnivale 2015 Street Performer of the year. There will be a $500 voucher prize for the winner and lots of prizes for the runners up.
All the finalists from the Saturday Festival will be invited to reprise their finals performances throughout the day at the Seafood Extravaganza at The Reef Marina on the closing Sunday of Carnivale.
