"Isn't it Fabulous!" 2021 Heritage Calendar. Celebrating fashion we love to remember.

The 2021 Heritage Calendar will showcase a mixture of stylish or unusual garments worn by fashion conscious ladies and gents, from beach frocks to flares. 

Council invites you to share your favourite images that celebrate these times from the past and present and is an exceptional way to present the frills, flounces and flair of days gone by. The calendar will bring together community memories and images taken on the Sunshine Coast and will create a special keepsake for sharing with friends and family.

  • Image included in the 2021 Heritage Calendar and accredited with the name of the photographer.
  • One canvas print of their image.
  • Invitation to the launch event.
