2015 is the 70th birthday for the BWMCA. - and we're planning quite a celebration.... at The Buderim Expo 2015 This year, the last weekend in November can truly claim to be Buderim's Mega weekend. There will be a plethora of activities to enjoy, with nearly 40 community groups holding displays and providing events for locals and visitors. The BWMCA is formed from a network of community groups (called the Affiliates) that come from many aspects of life in Buderim, and this structure has survived and prospered over 70 years. There are 63 such Affiliates who make sure that the community spirit will stay firm, and they truly are the heart of the BWMCA and also of Buderim.

Buderim Expo 2015 will be held on Saturday 28th from 8am - 4pm and on Sunday 29th from 9am- 2.30pm. It will pay tribute to the contribution that these groups have made to the BWMCA and Buderim. Buderim Expo 2015 will be a big, exciting open air event. The venue is the recently-opened beautiful Buderim Village Park, where super-size marquees will feature displays, activities and entertainment – that's fun for the public while promoting all the things these groups do within our community. The S.C. Regional Council is a major sponsor of this event.

Prizes are being awarded to the Affiliates who present the most informative and entertaining displays. Our Guest of Honour, noted Sydney social researcher and author Hugh Mackay, will judge the $1,000 Best Display Award, sponsored by Buderim State MP Steve Dickson. There will also be a $1,000 "People's Choice" Award, judged by the general public and sponsored by Buderim's Bendigo Community Bank. These prizes will be presented at 3pm on Sunday 29th at the AGM where Hugh Mackay will be the speaker.

Saturday 28th will feature non-stop entertainment from some of the Affiliates – Sunshine Statesmen, Buderim Band, Buderim Male Choir, Sunshine Coast Concert Band, S.C. Symphony Orchestra, and the S.C. Choral Society.

Sunday 29th is Family Fun Day, with games and activities for the young and young-at-heart - "Old Fashioned" games such as Knuckles, Hopscotch, Skittles, Paper Planes, Potato and Spoon walk will be mixed with Fairy Floss, Face Painting and of course the Caring Clowns.

Expo will coincide with the famous Christmas Fair - making it a truly mega weekend for Buderim. Parking can sometimes be a problem on Christmas Fair day, so from 8am to 4.30pm, and on Saturday only, the BWMCA have organized free parking at the Buderim Men's Shed - cnr Mill Road and Price Lane - with a free shuttle bus to and from the EXPO and Fair.
