Silkstone Under the Stars


​Get excited for the inaugural Silkstone Under the Stars! 

Silkstone State School is proud to invite you to its first ever Under the Stars Fete! The event will be held on Friday 25th October 2019 and will feature a wide range of family fun activities for everyone to enjoy. The Under the Stars Fete marks the first ever twilight event at Silkstone State School since its foundation in 1882. Our school has hosted many fantastic events over the years, but the Under the Stars Fete promises to be our community’s most memorable celebration yet!


This unique event will feature a thrilling sideshow alley, with rides suitable for all ages. Armbands for unlimited ride access will be available for purchase prior to the event. Each pre-purchased armband will also offer access to Farmland Farmyard – proudly sponsored by Lead Child Care Centres and Best Friend Pet Stores.

The street next to Silkstone State School will be closed off for traffic, and instead feature a remarkable range of hot rods, street cars and show machines. The car show is possible thanks to the generous support of Western Automotive, and is sure to impress the entire family! 

The Under the Stars Fete will include a range entertainment at the main hall. If all this wasn’t enough, the night will finish with a bang – thanks to an electrifying fireworks display! This year’s fireworks display is proudly sponsored by the Ipswich City Council. 

Food and stalls 

The Under the Stars Fete would not be complete without scrumptious food and a variety of stalls. We’re pleased to announce that there will be delicious food from around the world on offer, with the event boasting 18 separate food trucks!

The Under the Stars Fete will also feature over 50 stalls at our twilight markets, selling a wide range of arts and crafts, toys, gifts and much more. In addition, each school year level will host a different stall, including a Staff Dunking Machine supported by Shapland Swim Schools.
