“The world is sillier than us sometimes”

Russell Birdman Festival

Its wild, wacky and so much fun. Take your family,  mates and go to the Russell Birdman 2019

This year the festival is a 2 day event as we celebrate 14 years of people falling off the Russell wharf.

This festival is a perfect environment for families with kids.

There is corflute boat building, The Drag Race, spaghetti eating, cooking competitions, a beach dig, the Birdman Jump and squillion of crazy other activities to do!

 Full days packed with free fun filled activities planned for kids and big kids amongst us! 

Russell Birdman is Northlands’ biggest laugh out loud gathering – come along, see you there!

Enjoy the food stalls, kids entertainment, the most fun you can have in Northland, lots of laughs for the parents, competitions, drama and tears,  all in beautiful Russell.

Don’t miss The Drag Race on Friday afternoon

This is just one of the highlights of the Birdman fesitval, but probably the funniest of them all. You may never laugh this loud ever again!

Grown up men and women dress to depress in the oposite gender. Ladies as daggy as possible and men in frocks and heels.

The Russell Birdman Drag Race is truly a sight to behold.

The drag race is on at 4:30pm Friday
