The annual Moore Park Beach Festival Art Competition and Bazaar is a highlight of the Wide Bay/Burnett Region's cultural scene.

From Friday 7th to Sunday 9th August 2015, the public will enjoy a fun-filled family weekend.

Planning is underway to make this year's festival a great event for the public, and the organisers are expecting that this year will be even better than last year. Keep an eye on this site for further details of the festival, and also for any social events that the committee is planning to assist with fundraising for the festival.

School participation has always been 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. 2015 will be no exception with school bands giving a free concert on the grassed area of the Community Hall. The concert is open to the public and we hope that many will come and support these young musicians as they enjoy performing their music. Thanks go to teachers and parents for their support of this important part of the weekend.

A new feature this year will be Children's Kite-Making Workshops held in a marquee at Bob Nielson Park on both Saturday and Sunday betweem 10am and 2pm, so we are asking parents to book their children in for this workshop. It is only $5.50 per child for a kit, and after the workshop they will learn how to fly their kites. For more information or for bookings, please contact Muriel on 0407 598 017 or Deann on 4159 8917.

Also this year for the first time, anyone who books and attends our Official Opening Night, books a Market Site or a Bazaar Stall, enters the Art Competition (except children), or buys more than $10 worth of Raffle Tickets, will have their name automatically entered into our draw for 5 nights for 2 people at The Chevron Palms Motel, Gold Coast.

Moore Park Beach Arts Inc wishes to thank all our supporters for their generous support and assistance for the upcoming 2015 Moore Park Beach Festival Art Competition and Bazaar, without which the festival could not proceed and be the great event it always is.

We're coming to the 2015 Festival.
We hope you will also!

This year, there will again be a fireworks display on the Saturday evening. The display will be presented by Skylighter Fireworks. This is a Queensland company who have extensive experience and have put on displays around Australia.

Without the many sponsors, our annual Moore Park Beach Festival Art Competition and Bazaar would not be possible, and we would like to thank them for their kind support. Your support of these businesses would also be appreciated.
