The FESTURI management committee regrets to announce that all FESTURI events have been postponed due to the current extreme weather conditions. These events are:
Today: World Concert -Lake Kawana Community Centre
Tomorrow: Latin Dance Night - Lake Kawana Community Centre
Sunday: Great Multicultural Celebration -University of the Sunshine Coast.
Unfortunately the University of the Sunshine Coast grounds have been flooded and the conditions of the university grounds will be unsuitable for use as a festival venue. Therefore, regardless of weather conditions on Sunday, we will be unable to hold the event.
The management committee will be meeting early next week to decide on a new date for the event. This will be released on Friday 31st on the FESTURI website.

FESTURI is now calling for performers, artists, stallholders, community groups and storytellers to take part in the 2007 program. FESTURI want you to celebrate multi-cultural awareness the best way you know how.
Each year FESTURI aims to provide the Sunshine Coast with a multicultural event uniting school, community, business and government organisations in appreciation of cultural diversity, encouraging understanding and tolerance and fostering mutual respect.
A week of excitement culminating with the great celebration on Sunday the 26th of August at the University of the Sunshine Coast, where performers from all over south east Queensland will showcase their talents.
Through games, music, dance, storytelling, sculpture, arts and craft FESTURI offers an exciting range of activities for everyone to get involved.
Joe Natoli explains on the FESTURI website, "As Mayor of Maroochy Shire and due to my own Italian heritage I understand the importance of celebrating the more than 100 nationalities that make the Sunshine Coast their home."
FESURI will showcase delicious international food, stunning performance and vivid international costume and parade, as well as exhibitions.
Stall holders, performers, artists and volunteers are urged to visit www.festuri.org.au or call (07) 5445 7886 to become a part seventh annual celebration.
