"Doing Dads Proud" will take place at Cotton Tree Park on Father's Day, Sunday September 3rd, 2006.  Building on the success in 2005, with thousands of people attending, this free community event is now the largest single day Father's Day celebration in Queensland and Australia!  "Doing Dads Proud" is a multi award winning event, winning the 2003 & 2005 Australia Day Award for Best Community Event and Fisher Community Australia Day Award for 2004.


This year, festivities will take place from 10.00am to 4.00pm and the event will focus on the many different fathering roles that exist in families and the community on the Sunshine Coast.  Families from across the region can take advantage of this celebration by simply relaxing with the family or taking part in the many activities available including free rides for the young and the young at heart!,


So whether you're a young dad, old dad, new dad, community dad, part-time dad, foster dad, step dad or grand dad, there will be something for every kind of dad, from Boys Toys displays to a free interactive craft tent and free entry to Cotton Tree Pool and many more free interactive displays!


A community stage will host a variety of regional acts including Phil Emmanuel (one of Australia's best guitarists) in a programme that will be filled with six hours of free family entertainment..  Other performing artists will showcase the diverse talents of the region on the banks of the beautiful Maroochy River.  Volunteers from various community groups and regional organisations will assist on the day. These groups will provide valuable information at several locations on site.  Information about these groups and the services they provide will be an integral part of the celebration.
