SPARK Ipswich, the reimagined Ipswich Festival, is an 11-day city-wide event celebrating the people, places, arts and culture of Ipswich.

Music, comedy, arts, exhibitions, circus, projection, culture, cabaret, technology, collaboration and discussion will take over the City from 8-18 July.

The 2021 program will deliver up fresh new festival content including ‘Little Day Out’, a contemporary music, arts and sustainability festival just for kids.

SPARK will kick off with ‘Refraction’, a major art and light installation on the Bremer River and artwork projections on the historic St Mary’s Church will activate the City each night.

‘Waghorn to West’ will profile Queensland-born and bred musicians alongside Ipswich emerging artists and the festival’s world music series will showcase Ipswich’s culturally diverse performance community.

The festival will even hit the road! SPARK on Tour will take productions and circus workshops to audiences at small halls across the region.
