About

People are invited to visit and participate in the various events and activities which are part of the twenty-fourth Einbunpin Festival on Sunday 30th July 2017. This is an annual community held on the last Sunday in July each year.

Since 1992, the Einbunpin Festival is a celebration by and for the community about those things that make the Sandgate district special – the village atmosphere, the environment and the diverse talents and cultures that make up the community.

The Festival Committee is made up of a number of locals who volunteer to make the event a success. And since its inception, the Einbunpin Festival has been auspiced by SANDBAG.

The Einbunpin Festival continues to provide an opportunity for the community to come together and show-off the vibrancy and artistic talents found in the district. It’s a great chance to learn more about our local community, and catch up with friends.

Held in the heart of Sandgate, the Festival is held around the lagoon and parkland in Brighton Road Sandgate (bordered by Keogh Street, Lagoon Street and Bowser Parade).

The day includes something for everyone – stalls, entertaining performances by locals, as well as games and activities.

The Brisbane City Council has again been the backbone of support for the event, with sponsorship since 1992. Since its inception, local community organisation Sandgate & Bracken Ridge Action Group has auspiced the event.

Lyrics

Something’s going on…  It’s called Einbunpin

Something’s going on…  real soon

A festival of fun…  Einbunpin

Music and magic embrace… our lagoon

Sandgate spirit comes alive with stalls a plenty

Children make boats for the annual race

The mythical Bunpin asks you for a photo

And you feel that grin all over your face

Something’s going on…  a party never ending

The moment that you wear your Einbunpin grin

Something’s going on…  It’s called Einbunpin

A festival of fun…  for you

A festival of fun…  real soon

Einbunpin Festival…  for you!
