The Ritchies Boonah Arts Festival is an 8-day event every September that features street entertainment, competitions in art, performance, live theatre, writing, fashion, debate, and more.
The Arts Festival is one of the most acclaimed cultural events in rural Queensland. It has become what it is today, thanks to the hundreds of people, young and old, who enter the competitions, design and make costumes, provide song, dance, and music, and the many volunteers who work behind the scenes in choreography, direction, backstage, administration, and tasks that are too many to mention.
