Everywhere you turned last Saturday at Cooroy Fusion Festival there was fun to be had! They had it all – live music, street performers, fantastic food, kids activities, talented artists, literary events, market stalls, woodworking, motorbikes, animals, displays by community groups and businesses, orchids and plants, body painting, smiles everywhere and perfect sunny weather!
Cooroy Fusion celebrates what is great about the Noosa Hinterland and that was definitely on display on Saturday.
“It was a wonderful day with a record turnout estimated to be over 15,000 people. We lived up to our promise of being bigger and better this year and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from everyone. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing crew of volunteers and our generous partners and sponsors,” said Chris Bell, chairperson of the Cooroy Fusion Committee.
Cooroy Fusion is one of those special events that just bubbles with community spirit. It showcases what a wonderful part of the world we live in. Spread across Cooroy it included a huge range of activities at the Cooroy Mill Site, Cooroy Camphor Laurel Group, Cooroora Woodworkers, Cooroy Library, Butter Factory Arts Centre and CWA Hall.
The Bendigo Bank Entertainment Tent was packed full of top shelf entertainment and the Cooroy RSL Pickled Possum bar was a great spot to catch the likes of Hi Boys, Ayla, Cherry Ripes, the Greenwood Grove Geckoes Wildlife Experience and so much more! The Supa IGA Cooroy Tastes of the Hinterland was a big hit with attendees delighting in samples from local producers. Even the rides were above and beyond the norm with an inflatable obstacle challenge and mini-jeeps being two new additions to the festival and big hits with kids.
