The Moore Park Beach annual Festival of Arts is a Spring highlight
of the Wide Bay/Burnett Region's cultural scene.
Moore Park Beach Arts Inc. is a unique community group driven to providing an outlet for the many and varied aspects of art in the community. Artists, photographers, sculptors with many other arts and craft groups came together to present their craft. The Art and Photography Exhibition was open to all amateur artists.
The Community Hall was filled with Award winning art and photography for the weekend which opened with Award presentations on Friday 17th August.
Over the weekend exciting giant kites filled the air above the beach and yet higher up gyrocopters and aeronautical displays skimmed along the coastline, while on the sand children joined with the sand sculptor as he taught the intricacies of sand moulding.
On the Bicentennial Oval, market and food stalls abounded providing a backdrop to the exciting displays of horsemanship, Tae Kwon Do, international dancing, musical entertainment, cheerleading and tumbling. Jumping castle, face painting and balloon clowns were just a few of the activities to keep the littlies occupied.
Without the many sponsors our Annual Festival of Arts would not be possible and we would like to thank them for their kind support. Your support of these businesses would also be appreciated.

School participation is a big part of the Festival with many of the local schools participating in the Art programme as well as providing art in the form of music on the Friday morning. 2012 was no exception with school bands from around the district giving a free concert on the grassed area of the Community Hall.
The concert was open and the public came and supported these young musicians as they enjoyed the art of music. Thanks go to teachers and parents for their support of this important part of the weekend.
