Sarina Beach Coconut Festival SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Go nuts in Sarina!

The Sarina Beach Coconut Festival Committee would like to invite you to be a sponsor at our annual festival. The purpose of the festival is to attract visitors into our region, showcasing the food and culture of our area, particularly focusing on the coconuts.

The 2016 Sarina Beach Coconut Festival was a huge success attracting over 5000 people for the day. Stall holders had a fantastic day selling out of products and they can’t wait to return in 2017. The aim for 2017 is to extend the celebration with longer hours, more stalls and new exciting activities and entertainment.

Sarina Beach and the spectacular Serenity Coastline is one of the few areas in our region that still has an abundance of coconut trees and will provide a unique location for our event.

The Sarina Beach Coconut Festival is tipped to be a cracker! There’ll be coconut events, palm weaving, de-husking and de-nutting, tropical beach market stalls, sand art specialists, along with a myriad of extraordinary food experiences incorporating local produce and – of course – coconuts!

Other highlights will be free camel rides, kite surfing, kite flying and amazing entertainment. Visitors may even sight a humpback whale on its annual migration. We are planning an exciting event that will bring our beach community alive with excitement.

Our pristine 1.5kl coastline at Sarina Beach will be alive with adventure sports and activities. The festival will run from 12.00pm until 6.00pm on Saturday 19 August 2017 and will be a fusion of culture, food and fun, celebrating local diversity and our #mackaypride.

As this is a new festival to the region, we expect that this first festival will attract locals and visitors from nearby regions. Our market research shows us that 50% of our visitors to Sarina Beach come from Queensland so in our first year we will also be focusing our marketing on regional Queensland towns and cities.

Our event will be involving local schools within the region, Sarina Surf Lifesaving Club members, Sarina Beach Progress Association Members, staff and volunteers from local businesses and local service clubs.

We hope your business, employees and their families will join in the fun at one of the most beautiful beaches Queensland has to offer.

All funds raised at the Sarina Beach Coconut Festival will be donated to Sarina Beach Progress Association to be used for future community projects at Sarina Beach.
