Front Yard Friday

Starts 15th May

The Ipswich Show may be off, but the fun will go on.

During these challenging times we’re asking Ipswich residents to celebrate and showcase their city pride! While we can’t enjoy the usual fun and festivities in the city on May 15, we’re encouraging locals to support and celebrate Ipswich; decorating their driveways, set up your family yard fun, support local business by ordering your takeaway or BBQ packs and tune into River 94.9 and request your favourite music for the day.

Here’s how you can participate

Bring the show to your lounge room

Stay tuned for the release of our exclusive Ipswich Show themed Augmented Reality experience. You can find out more and download the app in preparation here.

Decorate to celebrate

Download our printables, get the kids crafting and decorate your front yard

Get your neighbours on-board and let your street shine! Select from our free printable bunting, paper flowers, paper chain and cards

Help build a city playlist

River 949 will be taking song requests from their Facebook Page.

Add your go-to tune by sending a message on any Front Yard Friday posts from Saturday, 9 May.

Support Ipswich Business: Shop and eat local!

Many of your favourite restaurants, cafes and pubs are offering great cook-at-home, delivery and takeaway offerings. Contact your favourite venue and see what’s on the May 15 menu! Our tip is minimising contact and using a card to tap and go when you’re doing your pick up.

Discover Ipswich can provide some Front Yard Friday food inspiration!
