The Waterfront Festival, now in its 19th year will be moved to Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 February 2018 as it welcomes the Queen’s Baton Relay in the lead up to the start of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
Frankston is excited to be a host of the GC2018 Queen’s Baton Relay and thinks the movement of The Waterfront Festival will showcase our magnificent city to a national audience.
The Festival will remain in the same format, taking on February’s weather, with some additional programming elements added in on Sunday 11 February to accommodate the Relay, possibly even a visit from Borobi the unstoppable Koala which is the 2018 Commonwealth Games mascot.
