The Sunshine Coast Pride Festival is an LGBTIQ event organised by a dedicated Committee of volunteers and is about providing a safe and fun environment for LGBTIQ people, their family and friends, to come together and celebrate our diversity.

The 2016 Festival will have an even bigger line up of events than in previous years.

Pride Party Night
The Reef Hotel – Soda - Noosa
Friday night 26 February 2016

Sunshine Coast Pride Festival comes alive on Friday, 26th February, launching with the Pride Party Night at the Coast’s newest night-spot – Noosa Reef’s SODA club. The party kicks-off at 8pm and features drag shows, burlesque dancers, muscle-boy entertainers and a whole lot of dancing in between with DJ ARSEE – winner of ‘Best DJ 2015’, spinning her mix of house, bounce, trap, dirty electro and more!
The hostess for the night is the Coast’s very own socialite Miss Melony Brests, who will officially welcome all to the Festival weekend accompanied by several of her local and out-of-town girlfriends and boyfriends joining her on centre stage as they sing, spin, sparkle and shimmy their way through the night.
The night’s $10 entry fee gives you this whole evening of partying and entertainment with music, dance, shows, confetti-cannons, prizes, special Pride drinks and more, running through until 3am if you have the stamina – and don’t forget your ID!
Tickets: $10 per person and available on the door on the night (no pre-sales).
