During the day there will be an array of funfair rides and games, an eclectic mix of world cuisines and many other activities for the whole family.

Throughout the event they will be serving up wine and cheese, a variety of crepes, authentic Italian pizza straight from a wood burning fire and even a special Louisiana food stall.

There will be multiple stages across the uni campus with bands and artists from the area and beyond.

The night time event will focus on the glamorous side of carnivals, with inspiration coming from the masquerade balls associated with the world famous Venice Carnival.

This 18+ event will have many artists performing, including Mischa and His Merry Men, with Mischa being able to boast Si Genaro, a contestant from the hit TV talent show The Voice as one of his Merry Men.

There will also be DJ sets from both students and professionals and burlesque dancers.
