Should there be a Seafood Festival?

Should there be a Seafood Festival?The Tin Can Bay Chamber of Commerce and Tourism is inviting all businesses, organisations and community members to an open forum to discuss the future of festivals in Tin Can Bay.

“The cancellation of the 2018 Seafood Festival has left a hole in the Cooloola Coast calendar. The Chamber wants to take a community approach to moving forward with major events,” President Jess Milne explained.

“The economic environment in the bay has changed over the last 20 years. A clear definition needs to be established on the theme of major events to capitalize on the tourism marketing benefit.”

The Chamber is seeking input and discussion from all stakeholders to secure a successful festival future. With an abundance of natural attractions the area has to offer there are many opportunities to ‘celebrate’ local lifestyle.

Chamber also wants ideas for complementary events to be incorporated either on the day or during the same time period such as local tours, workshops and information sessions.

The outcome of the forum will set the future of festivals in Tin Can Bay so please mark Thursday March 14 on your calendar and come along to the Tin Can Bay Country Club at 6pm filled with enthusiasm and ideas.

If you can’t make it then please forward any input to tcbchamberofcommerce@gmail.com or call Jess on 0411 218 254 to arrange a time for a chat.
