Crankfest is the largest celebration of youth arts and culture on the Far North Coast.

Held on the waterfront at Evans Head, the day kicks off at 8am with a surf competition and Evans Head’s largest markets in the Main Beach area.

By 10am the three stages will showcase dance, singer songwriter and live bands.

The skate competition kicks off at 12 noon with warm ups to start and the skate jam gets underway around 2pm.

The Crankfest Xtreme festival offers youth a chance to step up and shine at the Break-a-move showcase stage or in hip hop and the surfing competitions. Or to kick back to the sounds of live bands or funky deejays. With creative workshops and heaps of great kid’s activities, plus diverse food and art markets, Crankfest offers something for the whole family.

This is a free event showcasing the talents of youth from across the region and beyond.
