Peregian Beach Carols Is Coming to Town

Keep an eye on the sky on Wednesday, December 22nd, when Santa returns to Peregian Beach for the Sunshine Coast’s longest running Christmas carols, now in its 57th year.

A committed group of local volunteers and events professionals are gathering each week to prepare what they hope will be the best carols event yet, including a host of local entertainers.

Leigh McCready, President of Peregian residents’ association Peregian Family and Friends said: “Following 18 months of COVID uncertainty, it is exciting to bring such an iconic event to the community, especially being the longest running carols event on the Coast!”

“Last year, we ran a small Carols event at the Surf Club due to restrictions on numbers, but this year we have teamed up with the Peregian Beach Business Association (PBBA) to bring the event back to the park and we’d love the whole community to attend.”

PBBA President Nicki White added: “This years’ event is going to have all the old favourites like carol singers, musicians singing traditional and modern songs and of course a very special guest will be there for the kids…”

“But we’re also introducing some new features, such as a local artisan market for those last minute Christmas goodies, jumping castle and a spectacular laser light show to conclude the evening with lots of surprises in between.”

Ms McCready continued: “With the support of Noosa Council we have been able to keep the cost to attend the Carols low, with a $10 per family ticket to replace gold coin per person donations previously required at the entry gates.”

“Our two organisations are also working with fantastic local events managers, Events Cartel and Key Elements, to ensure the evening runs smoothly.”

Ms White concluded: “We want everyone to come along and celebrate our wonderful community and the spirit of Christmas on Wednesday 22nd December, from 3pm in Peregian Park, Peregian Beach.”
