Since 2005, the World's Greatest Pub Fest has honoured the quintessential Australian tradition of a good, old-fashioned pub crawl.
In 2017, they are bringing home the record. No longer living in Kansas City, this will be the year that young and young-at-heart gather in Maryborough to reclaim the glory!
The annual World's Greatest Pub Fest is a celebration of mateship and reunions and highlights Maryborough’s outstanding heritage architecture and welcoming hospitality. The Pub Fest has a timeless appeal and crosses cultural and demographic boundaries. Young and old, friends and strangers, chat, laugh, dance and party away the afternoon as they work their way around the city’s pubs. Some of the most enthusiastic revellers are groups of grandmothers and grandfathers who – like so many others – use the fest as an annual reunion.
Event-goers in outlandish costumes walk or ride buses between local venues, including many historic Queenslander hotels, to join in the wacky fun.
In support of this year's Charity - Rural Aid - the 2017 theme is the Aussie Outback and the colour green.
