Craigieburn Festival Activities and Entertainment

Performances

We’re thrilled to announce our full line-up of talented performers for Craigieburn Festival.  Our jam-packed program of entertainment will be headlined by acclaimed singer songwriter Nathaniel. Nathaniel’s single “You” peaked at number four on the ARIA Singles Chart and he was a finalist on the fourth season of The X Factor Australia. 

Nathaniel will be joined by Bernie and Janine, Sarahj, Kara, DJ Jay Gusman, Lakdaruwo Cultural Foundation, Sounds of Polynesia, Caribbean Kings, Super Mande Percussion, Raieburn Calisthenics, Toby T Rex and Roaming Reptiles.

Skye from Paw Patrol will provide roving entertainment throughout Craigieburn Festival from 1pm - 4pm. In the TV series Paw Patrol a group of six rescue dogs, led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder, has adventures. The heroic pups, who believe "no job is too big, no pup is too small," work together to protect the community.

 

CFA Torchlight Parade

Emergency services help in our times of need. Watch this iconic torchlight parade and celebrate the men and women who serve and volunteer, featuring SES, CFA, Victoria Police and Craigieburn Cert. Taking place at 8:45pm (weather dependent). 

 

Stockland Highlands Fireworks

Craigieburn Festival will conclude with a 10-minute fireworks display sometime between 9.20pm – 9.40pm. Fireworks, while entertaining for humans, can be a little scary for our four-legged friends. Please ensure your pets are suitably restrained/brought inside prior to the fireworks being let off. This will prevent them from getting out and getting themselves lost after the event.
