This coming school holiday in July, treat the kids to an unmissable festival of magical storytelling and family-friendly entertainment taking place in Maryborough. This annual festival pays homage to Maryborough local P. L. Travers, who is best known for being the creator of world-famous fictional character Mary Poppins.
Since the first appearance of Mary Poppins in 1934, P. L. Travers’ iconic character has given rise to a number of books, stage musicals, and films, including the 1964 Walt Disney hit, and the highly-anticipated Mary Poppin Returns soon to be released this 2018. Mary Poppins is a cultural icon that’s recognised the world over, and one to be proud of for locals of Maryborough, Queensland.
For ten days the Mary Poppins Festival in Maryborough celebrates this iconic character, and it’s the perfect event each year for families with kids. The festival celebrates storytelling for all the ages with a fantastic program of live music and theatre performances, alongside storytelling exhibitions, art installations, and a whole host of kids’ activities, including the brand new Maryborough Story Trails experience.
Mary Poppins Festival will take place throughout Richmond Street and Wharf Street in Maryborough, and offers the perfect treat for kids over the school holiday. Bring the whole family to 2018’s Mary Poppins Festival this June 29 to July 8.
