Saturday Night After Party

This year at the Carnivale, we are holding a Saturday Night After Party to give everyone a space to get together and celebrate after the first day of competitions. The party will kick off at the School of Arts straight after the final parades for the day (around 5pm).

It’s fancy dress so wear your best dreams and nightmares costume, pyjamas or body art!  DJ Dave Daly will give you the tunes to groove to and there will be a licensed bar and tasty food available for purchase!  Tickets are $5 if paid in advance and $10 at the door (unless sold out). Book your space here


The Australian Body Art Carnivale is held annually in Eumundi, the dates for 2014 are Saturday 3 May and Sunday 4 May.                   

The 2014 theme is the "Dreams and Nightmares" which lends itself to a wide range of interpretations for artists.

The Carnivale will again be ‘A Festival of Colour’ centred around body art in its many and varied forms. For members of the public, it will be nothing short of phenomenal to watch the human canvases take shape during the competitions.  For artists it presents an opportunity to showcase their creativity, experience the amazing atmosphere of the Carnivale and compete for over $14,000 in cash and prizes.

There will be a feast of other entertainment including a ticketed event on Saturday evening, competitions and exhibitions in wearable art, vehicle art and photography.

All weekend there will also be entertainment, market stalls and lots of fun activities for kids and families including face painting, craft workshops, pavement art and the ‘All Dolled Up’ doll decoration competition.
