About the Shoalhaven River Festival

Celebrating Life in the Shoalhaven

The Shoalhaven River Festival is a two day community event celebrating life in the beautiful Shoalhaven. A free weekend event held in October each year, the Festival unites our wonderful community and visitors to the region for two action packed days of family friendly festivities.

Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 October 2017

The event will kick off with the famous Nowra CBD street parade showcasing our beloved community groups and local businesses. Following the parade, the fun continues on the southern banks of the beautiful Shoalhaven River with live entertainment, market stalls, river activities, kids amusements, a marina expo, the arts precinct and an exciting Saturday night fireworks display. On Sunday the fun continues on the shores of the River with more river activities, and entertainment.
