The Ride the Wave Festival established in 2021 has become an annual fundraising event for Make A Difference PMQ (M.A.D) that showcases the region to the wider community whilst advocating for the disadvantaged and marginalised.

They are excited to team up with Surfing NSW, the NSW Government and Port Macquarie Hastings Council to bring the Ride the Wave Festival to Port Macquarie once again.

In 2022 the festival will include competitions for short and long board surfing and a skate and scooter comp. In addition, a Battle of the Bands style competition will also take place. This will culminate in a ticketed music festival titled Ride the Sound Wave, which includes free market stalls, food vendors and family activities in the skate park precinct. A special addition to this festival is the over 18s “Barrel Room” beer garden provided within the ticketed Ride the Sound Wave area.

100% of the entry fees will be donated to the “Make a Difference Mobile Food Van Service” to support people experiencing homelessness in the local area and also domestic violence services within the region. Ride the Wave aims to raise over $20,000 annually.

Follow their social media pages and keep an eye on web page updates for information regarding the RIDE THE WAVE FESTIVAL 2022, June 18th – 19th & 24th – 26th.
