5 Awesome Events Popping Up On The Coast This Week

By Claire Plush - 23 Jan 2017

Well, aren’t we just flying through January?! If this month were a car, we’d be slamming our foot down trying to slow this shiz down.

But, then again, we’d be missing out on these awesome events happening this week on the Sunshine Coast. And we wouldn’t want to do that now, would we?

Australia Day | Thursday, January 26

Australia Day has arrived, and with it a smorgasboard of parties, good times, and of course, the Hottest 100. We’re sharing our list of where to celebrate this Australia Day on the Sunshine Coast tomorrow, so keep your eyes looking this way, folks!

6th Sunshine Coast Yoga Day | Saturday, January 28

If you’re on the Coast this weekend and live and breathe yoga, then you’d better jump on this Currimundi event. The Sunshine Coast Yoga Day brings together some of the Coast’s best yoga teaches to host a bunch of workshops in one place. Sounds pretty convenient, no? Tickets are $60 if purchased online or $75 at the door.

MooloolaBaBQ Festival | Saturday, January 28

To celebrate our Aussie love of the good ‘ol BBQ, Mooloolaba Wharf is turning into an epic barbecue fiesta this Saturday from 10am to 8pm. There’ll be all kinds of barbecue shenanigans with a mix of food from different cultures being cooked in all kinda ways—grilled, smoked, on a spit, and more—food trucks, craft beers, live entertainment, chef demos, fireworks, and the National Championship Series Barbecue Competition. And even though scoffing your face with barbecued seafood, pork, and lamb is probs going to be the highlight of your day, you can also feel good knowing you’re helping to raise funds for Cancer Council with entry to this family-friendly festival a small $15 (kids under five are free).

Live Music At Villain Espresso | Saturday, January 28

Nambour’s Villain Espresso and Time Machine, have joined forces to host their first gig of 2017 and we’ve no doubt it’s going to be epic. Hosting five Brisbane bands—The Goon Sax, BENT, Kitchen’s Floor, Sydney2000, Pious Faults—if you’re looking for more of an underground live music event on the Coast, this might be right up your alley. Entry will set you back 10 bucks, and it’s BYO which makes us love it even more.

Sunshine Coast Bridal Showcase | Sunday, January 29

‘Tis the season for proposals, so if it’s your turn to walk down the aisle next, you’d best be marking this date in your diary. Sunshine Coast Bridal Showcase will be held at Novotel Twin Waters, where you’ll be able to admire the handiwork and chat in-person with over 100 wedding suppliers. You can pre-purchase tickets online for $10 or pay $14 at the door. The best bit? Your ticket puts you in the running to win the $15,000 Ultimate Bridal Package drawn on the day. We’re crossing our fingers for you!
