Eumundi Markets is open this weekend - Australian Body Art Carnivale has been moved from the amphitheatre to behind the Newsagent on the main street. There will be face painting only, no workshops.
The inaugural Australian Body Art Carnivale promises to be a leading event on the Sunshine Coast's events calendar. It will showcase body artistry in all it's forms with workshops, exhibitions and performances in this ancient artform. There will be a number of competitions and a final performance on the amphitheatre which you should not miss.
Australian Body Art Carnivale
Saturday - Sunday 25th - 26th August 2007
We promise a weekend of creative energy, excitement and heaps of fun at Eumundi.
Ria Clauss who has competed at three World Body Art Competitions in Austria had the vision for an Australian competition that was modelled on the same high quality standards as the northern hemisphere events. Ria is acting as a creative adviser for Eumundi Historical Assn. which is hosting this inaugural carnivale.
Eumundi is a vibrant melting point of talent and voices encouraged by the world-famous markets that the village is known for. It is in a beautiful area and at the end of Queensland's mild winter it will be just the place to be. There's a program of events to support the competition which involves the whole village in the festival of colours.
We hope you will consider joining us - to be in at the start of what we expect to be a annual event with a reputation for quality, magic and fun
