The 2018 Barcaldine Tree of Knowledge Festival will once again be a jam packed long weekend of fun, mateship and top class events.
What was once a one day float parade on the Labour Day Monday and known as May Day Parade and Celebrations has grown to a full weekend of community celebration embracing a diverse range of activities including Street Festival, Rev Fest, and Goat Racing now known as the Barcaldine Tree of Knowledge Festival.
The May Day holiday was abandoned in 2013 but the festival proceeds as usual, using the motto "We may have lost the holiday but we haven't lost the tradition".
This year, the Barcaldine Regional Council in conjunction with the Community Groups of Barcaldine proudly present the 2018 Barcaldine Tree of Knowledge Festival. The festival showcases the community spirit and all that is great about Barcaldine and the outback.
We would love you to be part of this exciting and unique long weekend.
I do hope you support this traditional festival. Have a great long weekend.
