The Morgan Bay Footprints Festival

The 2016 festival is still in the planning stages and so we don’t have a programme of events to show you, however you can expect a craft market, live music, kids activities, trail and MTB races, open days at the Morganville Motorcycle Museum, evening entertainment, birding walks, games drives, art exhibitions and much, much more.

We hope to encourage you to reduce your carbon FOOTPRINT this weekend, choosing walking or cycling as your preferred mode of transport. Explore Morgan Bay on FOOT if possible.

We guarantee you will have a fun and memorable time and look forward to seeing there!

The Morgan Bay Footprints Festival’s mission is a simple one: to showcase, preserve and celebrate all that constitutes Morgan Bay and the wonderful lifestyle one is privileged to experience here, due to its rich ecology, culture and heritage. The collective efforts of the dedicated Morgan Bay locals have laid the foundations for this fantastic initiative and our community upliftment projects include the iXara Crèche and the development of a community recycling project.
