About the Festival
The Sunshine Coast Pride Festival is an LGBTIQ event organised by a dedicated Committee of volunteers and is about providing a safe and fun environment for LGBTIQ people, their family and friends, to come together and celebrate our diversity.
Commencing in 2007, the Festival was an initiative of the Queensland Aids Council (QuAC) to engage with the local LGBTIQ community.
Since our humble beginning, we have grown to become a weekend-long Festival, with a variety of events, activities and entertainment to cater for all ages and interests.
The 2017 Festival will have an even bigger line up of events than in previous years. Go to our Events page to find out more and we look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events.
Our premier event is always the Pride Fair Day which we have partnered with the Eumundi Markets to host the Day.
The Festival is run by the community and relies on community support and receives funding from community grants, sponsors, proceeds from events that are re-invested and donations from supporters.
You can make a donation through our website.
The Festival is auspiced by QuAC which maintains the integrity of the financial records for the Festival.
We would like to thank the Sunshine Coast Council for their continued financial support through their Community Grant Scheme.
