The 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast will be officially commemorated on August 1 2017.
In the 50th Anniversary year we plan to celebrate our identity, engage our community and showcase our history and future. In this exciting milestone year we’ll also celebrate and commemorate the people that have shaped and defined the Sunshine Coast.
A full program has been planned to mark this historic occasion.
Our Sunshine Coast Concert is a community concert in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Naming of the Sunshine Coast.
This community event draws together local artists and community groups to create an outstanding event and musical experience to commemorate this historic occasion.
