Updated December 2019.

Port Macquarie is at its brilliant best during the summer months. It’s a time when families from all corners of the country gather to celebrate the Christmas and New Year period. It’s a special time of the year and the mood around town is brimming with joy and happiness.

There are so many events that take place right across the Mid-North Coast for everyone to enjoy but the Young’s Family Carnival has stood the test of time for almost four decades. Starting in 1972, it now brings generations of families to what has become their highlight of the festive season. This year will be no different when the carnival returns with plenty of old favourites plus new and exciting games and rides as well.

The Carnival kicks off on December 22, and is open from 6.30pm-10.30pm every night until January 18, including New Year’s Eve! For updates on what’s happening at Young’s Family Carnival including wet weather plans, follow the Young’s Family Carnival on Facebook

There’ll be plenty of stands with all your favourite carnival food such as hotdogs, chips and drinks when those inevitable tummy rumbles come. After all, nothing works up an appetite quite like a night of fun and entertainment for the whole family at the Young’s Family Carnival…

  • Get the adrenaline flowing on action-packed rides
  • Take a walk down Sideshow Alley and win soft toys for a special someone
  • Test your own skills on games such as the Laughing Clowns, Smash The Bottle, and the 4 Duck Shootout
