Worlds Greatest Pub Fest 1

The World's Greatest Pub Fest has long since honoured a quintessential Australian tradition, and Maryborough has set the bar high for the good old fashioned hotel hop.

The PubFest is both a celebration of friendships and Maryborough’s outstanding heritage architecture and welcoming hospitality. Its appeal transcends time, culture and demographic boundaries. Let this be a reunion of people of all ages, as they interact, share giggles, and dance the afternoon away around the busy city’s popular pubs. Historically, Maryborough had set the original Guinness World Record for the greatest pub crawl in June 2005 with 1,198 participants. It then broke its own record in June 2006 with 2,237 people visiting 17 pubs within six hours.

Considered one of Queensland’s oldest cities, Maryborough continues to set itself apart with its century-old heritage that is waiting to be discovered by locals and holidaymakers like you. Stand a chance to be part of this living history and be part of this year’s Pub Fest, which takes place on 1 May 2016, which will bear red and horror as the main thematics, with Red Frogs as the chosen charity. Enjoy a drink or two at a century-old pub and meet colourful Queenslanders and holiday goers. Here’s what you have to do:

Purchase an official PubFest passport. Your passport is your ticket into this year's Pub Fest. No passport means no bus, no prize money, and no money for charity.

Form a team and create your PubFest costumes. Round up your buddies and get creative with your costumes. Costume competitions will be held throughout the day, and cash prizes will be awarded to the best dressed individual, best team, and People’s Choice award.

Find a starting point. Make your way to any of the participating pubs on a Sunday just before the official starting time at 11:00 am. Maryborough's time cannon will fire in Wharf Street and the bells of St. Paul's Anglican Church will ring to kick off the day.                             

Enjoy the day with your mates while collecting stamps for your card. Get your card stamped on the back of the Pub Fest Passport. When you purchase any item from over the bar, the bar attendant will stamp your card. Once you acquire a fully stamped card, complete the information section and pop it into the barrel for a chance to win $5000 cash.
