Get Involved

The Ritchies Boonah Arts Festival is about promoting the cultural heart of the community. It gives the community an opportunity to display its talent or in the art, writing, and fashion competitions, or on stage in lively and entertaining  shows.

Get involved, onstage, backstage, social media, logistics, clerical, or general help. Make friends and contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of the community. It’s lots of fun.


For our younger performers, where else can school age children learn choregraphed dances and meet new friends at no cost. Have an absolute ball, practicing routines once a week throughout term 3 then hit the stage in September in colourful costumes, lots of props (it’s all free) and the widest smiles. Contact


Love a robust discussion and a good belly laugh? We’re looking for new debaters to join the affirmative or negative sides. Contact


Enter the Art Awards, try your hand at painting and have some fun at the Sip and Paint event, purchase a raffle ticket at the Art Viewing, to make your selection for the People’s Choice Awards or become a volunteer and help hang the arts works. Contact
