Nestled along the picturesque shores of Ettalong Beach, the Stars Festival emerges as a radiant celebration of cinematic brilliance and the indomitable spirit of women who graced the silver screen. From the 10th to the 11th of February, Diggers Ettalong Beach transforms into a haven where nostalgia meets the present, inviting enthusiasts to partake in a grand spectacle that pays homage to the luminaries of the past.

The Stars Festival, organised by the Australian PinUp Pageant, unfolds as a resplendent tapestry, weaving together the tales of extraordinary women who have left an indelible mark on the fabric of our cultural consciousness. It stands as a testament to their creativity, passion, and courage, echoing through time to inspire generations. The festival unfolds as a tribute to these iconic figures, embodying a harmonious blend of the vintage allure of classic cinema and the contemporary vibrancy of modern expression.

“Celebrating Women Of The Silver Screen,” declares the festival’s mission, encapsulating a profound acknowledgement of the trailblazing achievements of remarkable individuals. The Stars Festival is not merely an event; it is a journey back in time and a celebration of the enduring legacy that transcends eras. It reverently embraces the ethos of “A TRIBUTE TO THE PAST IN THE PRESENT,” fostering an atmosphere where the bygone era seamlessly intertwines with the contemporary spirit.

At the heart of the festival is the Australian PinUp Pageant’s dedication to commemorating the women who shattered barriers, defied stereotypes, and paved the way for a more inclusive and equitable world. The inaugural year of the festival casts its radiant spotlight on five influential women—Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Lucille Ball, Eartha Kitt, and Mae West. These luminaries, with their boundless creativity and unwavering passion, are celebrated for igniting inspiration in future generations.

As the festival unfolds annually, it promises to illuminate the lives of more iconic figures. Each year will unveil a new constellation of stars, such as Hedy Lamarr, Anna May Wong, Bettie Davis, Carmen Miranda, and Judy Garland, ensuring that the Stars Festival remains a dynamic tribute to the diversity, inclusiveness, equity, and leadership championed by these remarkable women.

Thus, let the Stars Festival at Diggers Ettalong Beach be a beacon, drawing together enthusiasts, cinephiles, and admirers alike. In this radiant celebration, the legacy of the silver screen’s leading ladies is not only remembered but also celebrated, ensuring that their stories continue to inspire and resonate across the ages.
