After five fun festivals, the Ballina Prawn Festival organisers are taking a break in 2018.
There is a team working behind the scenes planning for 2019, working on the possibility of a reinvigorated festival with greater community involvement - watch this space!
Whilst we love our furry friends, dogs are not permitted at the festival.
The Ballina Prawn Festival is one whole day and night of fun, laughter and community.
This quirky celebration of rich local heritage has a raft of unique, often hilarious and very entertaining activities where audience participation is warmly encouraged. Festival visitors can enjoy exciting rides, great music and delicious food. The Ballina Prawn Festival is a quintessential Aussie event and a wonderful celebration of the laid backed Ballina lifestyle.
