About the Event
The annual Mary Poppins Festival celebrates the power of storytelling and sets the scene for visitors to be transformed into their own world of play and imagination. Maryborough’s beautiful Queens Park, riverside parklands and heritage streetscapes come to life in scenes reminiscent of the Mary Poppins stories. It is the birthplace of Mary Poppins author P. L Travers whose beloved novels were brilliantly adapted for the popular Disney movie of the same name and the award-winning musical. This free event is guaranteed to delight both young and the young at heart, with festival favourites, Chimney Sweeping, Nanny Races and the Grand Parade along with characters from the novel such as Mary Poppins, and Admiral Boom firing his cannon, plus street food vendors, market stalls, rides, pavement art and live entertainment.
