Nambour Forecourt Live! is back on March 18
Nambour Forecourt Live! is back on March 18, and this time it’s themed around Harmony Week. The event will celebrate diversity with friends, family, schools, workplaces and local communities.
Sunshine Coast Council Division 10 Councillor David Law says inclusiveness, respect, and a sense of belonging for everyone was the feeling every Nambour Forecourt Live! event should be known for.
“This will be our third Live! event to activate the forecourt since its rejuvenation,” Councillor Law says.
“We are working towards them becoming monthly events in partnership with Andrea Kirwin, founder of Nambour business Peace Run Records.”
Cr Law says Nambour Forecourt Live! aims to support local businesses and creatives. He encourages the Nambour community and the wider Sunshine Coast to support the plethora of local businesses who are the backbone of the Nambour community.
Event partner Andrea Kirwin says Nambour Forecourt Live! is an opportunity to celebrate the vibrant community and the camaraderie of the town.
“It’s an activation of the forecourt, which has been beautifully refurbished by council,” Kirwin says.
“We’ve had some great family-friendly events so far. It’s wonderful to see momentum building as we move into 2022 and people are excited to come to the next one.”
