Brunswick Heads Fish n Chips Festival & Woodchop Carnival

Established as a community based ‘not for profit’ organisation the Brunswick Valley Woodchop & Entertainment Committee Inc. hosts the Festival Fish ‘n’ Chips each year as a lead up to their Woodchop Carnival which draws international contestants from New Zealand and USA.

The Brunswick Carnival is currently regarded as the biggest woodchopping event outside the Sydney and Brisbane shows.

Festival of the Fish n Chips commences with the mega fireworks display. The fireworks are viewed by thousands who gather along the waterfront near Banner Park. It is a real community event, strongly supported by the people of the Brunswick Valley and the holiday makers, who spend their time locally and in adjoining towns.

The 2016 Woodchop Carnival runs from January 9 – 16.

The full festival program can be found here.
