Summerfest is for family and fun, let’s help people find theirs after the fire disaster
In lieu of fireworks at Summerfest this year, Sunnybank Performing Arts and Cultural Centre are fundraising for Red Cross to ensure they can be there for people when the worst happens.
Dealing with an emergency can be stressful and exhausting and recovering from a disaster is a complex process that may take months, even years to overcome. Red Cross supports people through their recovery by being there to provide practical and emotional support and information.
Helping people who have been affected by disasters is really important to us and we'd love your support. Please help Sunnybank Performing Arts and Cultural Centre by donating to our fundraising page.
Family-friendly and FREE, everybody is invited to a fun-filled day of live music, fresh food, giveaways and kids activities at the Sunnybank Performing Arts & Cultural Centre (SunPAC).
This community-focused cultural event has something for everyone from offering a perfect day and night out for families and friends.
Live outdoor performances from Peter Combe, Soul Cutz, Noralyn, Stevie Nicholson and the SuperDudes. And a special guest appearance from our Star Wars actor, Jay Laga'aia!
No tickets required!
SunPAC Summerfest is FREE entry to all performances. However, we suggest arriving early to secure your preferred seat at the community performances and to secure your best seat on the grass outside.
We recommend that you bring a rug to sit on during the outdoor stage performance.
