Street Parade

We'll be rolling down the streets of Gladstone with the Festival's iconic Street Parade again in 2018!

Get ready to set your sails for the 2018 Gladstone Harbour Festival Street Parade!
2018's parade will be themed as a Parade of Sails, let's join together to celebrate the 70th year of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race! Dust off your flags, make some colourful bunting, break out a sailors costume, sew some ship's sails, beautify your float and get involved.
