​Found yourself in a jumpsuit, needing to go without a bathroom in sight? Perhaps you have no where to park the Elvis Mobile? Or you need a little ‘One for the Money'? 

We have you covered with this handy map to help you out during the festival. 

How do I get there from Forbes?

The Forbes Railway Arts and Tourist Centre has copies of the full festival program and the bus timetable from Forbes. 

They’re located in the old railway building on Union Street – it’s a left turn off the Newell Highway just before you head out of Forbes towards Parkes. 

If you’re just keen to head over for an evening or two, Forbes’ Cenwest Tours is doing an evening shuttle. Bookings are essential, contact Mel on 0439 520 087.

Breakfast before the parade

Don’t head to the Saturday morning parade on an empty stomach, grab breakfast in Templar Street. The party continues all morning for those who aren’t heading to the parade.
