Australia's biggest Fathers Day Celebration!
"Doing Dads Proud"

Queensland's largest Father's Day celebration - "Doing Dads Proud" - will take place at Cotton Tree Park on Father's Day, Sunday, September 4th!! In 2004, more than 15,000 people attended this celebration of fatherhood, making this free community event the largest Father's Day celebration in Australia!  It also won an Australia Day Award for Best Community Event in 2003 and The Fisher Community Australia Day Award for 2004!!

Festivities will take place from 10.00am to 4.00pm on September 4, and the event will focus on the many different fathering roles that exist in families and 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 to an interactive craft tent and free entry to Cotton Tree Pool!

A community stage will host a variety of regional acts like Mishelle Bradford-Jones, Adrian Ross and Stoked in a programme that will be filled with six hours of free family entertainment. More than 40 performing artists will showcase the diverse talents of the region on the bank of the beautiful Maroochy River. Volunteers from various community groups and regional organisations will assist on the day. These groups 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.

"Doing Dads Proud" is a non-profit event produced by Lifeline Sunshine Coast. Any profits incurred on the day will be directly injected into the Men and Family Relationships Project, providing relationship support for men in the Sunshine Coast and Cooloola regions. "Doing Dads Proud" - it's on again, its celebrating fatherhood and it's going to be BIG!
