This will be the third year the Eumundi Markets have hosted the Pride Fair Day, and we're thrilled to share in such a colourful event celebrating the Sunshine Coast’s diversity by bringing together LGBTIQ community, and their friends and family, in a fun and supportive environment.  

The underlying 2016 Festival’s theme is “OUT 'N' EQUAL” – encouraging all community members to be proud and confident, and remember there is no difference between us all  – except regarding who we LOVE  – and that's our own business!

The hub of the festivities will be at the Eumundi Amphitheatre, and will be hosted by renowned drag queen Monica Fusions – always adding a splash of colour, pizzazz and fabulousness.  

2016 sees an additional peformance space - the Rainbow Stage - in the centre of the markets to be hosted by the Sunshine Coast's very own drag queen Melony Brests.
