SUNfest SUNfest


SUNfest 2019 is on from January 14 to 24 for youth aged 11 to 17 providing a fun-filled program of events and activities across the Gladstone Region. 


What is it all about?

SUNfest was initiated in 1998, as a result of the Gladstone City Council's Youth Needs Study that recognised the lack of low cost activities and opportunities for youth in the region.

From its early beginnings of 40 workshops attended by 400 participants, SUNfest has now grown to a high profile event providing activities for more than 1000 young people.

With the support of local businesses and industry, SUNfest is now a much anticipated annual festival that offers more than just school holiday entertainment.

Gladstone Regional Council's SUNfest Youth Program is held each January for two weeks during the summer school holidays.

Leading up to the program launch, Expressions of Interest are called from interested tutors.
