The MacGlide Festival of Sails returns to Steampacket Gardens this summer with a smorgasboard of experiences for the whole family.
The Festival of Sails is the largest annual keel boat regatta in the Southern Hemisphere with over 300 yacht entries and 3,000 competitors annually taking part in the event. First held in 1844, the Festival of Sails Regatta is one of the nation’s oldest sporting events, and has evolved over many years culminating in its current format as Australia’s foremost keelboat regatta.
Running alongside the sailing action, the free community Waterfront Festival features numerous acts across three stages and a multitude of stallholders to provide you with fine food and wine, live music, entertainment and roving performers, art and craft market stalls, novelty stalls, an on-water Come & Try Zone and a dedicated family friendly kids zone all along the stunning Geelong Waterfront and in the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.
Festival Dates: 25th of January to 27th of January 2020
