NQ's Rock'n Country - Volunteers Wanted

Fri 20 Aug 2021 to Sun 22 Aug 2021

  • Mackay Showgrounds

All kids deserve a fair go which is why QCCS presents NQ’s Rock’n Country music festival have set a target of $100,000 to raise much needed funds for Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Variety – the Children’s Charity, supports kids and families who are facing many challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with a disability. Their work allows kids to gain mobility, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, achieve independence and increase their self-esteem. They help to make sure the kids who miss out, can always join in.

We are now looking to the community to help us in reaching this goal through volunteering their time and skills to help us deliver Mackay’s first three-day country music festival.

There are a variety of opportunities available, go to, for more information and to register your details.

For those able to assist us in reaching this goal, there will be ‘thank you’, dependent on your time dedicated during the festival.
