Heritage Showcase

Celebrate the Sunshine Coast’s rich history at the Heritage Showcase event.

Come and enjoy a free, fun day out and step back in time. View displays and meet the experts from more than 15 local museums and heritage organisations. There will be fashion parades through the eras, lost arts, such as wood carving demonstrations, live entertainment, makers demonstrations and much more. The showcase provides a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the region’s heritage all in one location, so get your family and friends together and make a day of it.

Location  Date and Time 
Eumundi School of Arts Hall,
corner of Pacey Street and
Memorial Drive, Eumundi
Sunday 22 April, 10.00 am – 3.00 pm

The Heritage Showcase and Discovery Weekend events are funded by the Sunshine Coast Council Cultural Heritage Levy. The levy was introduced in 2009 to ensure the region’s stories, traditions and places continue to be protected and experienced by future generations.
