Bellbowrie is ready to groove as the first Sugarwood Music Festival opens soon to celebrate community connection and resilience.
It’s fair to say that one of the most asked questions between significant others in the Western Suburbs in the days leading up to the Sugarwood Music Festival in Bellbowrie on March 26 will be taken directly from the Mark Knopfler Opus – Romeo and Juliet – “You and me babe, how about it?” What else would you do on a beautiful March evening but attend a Free concert with the billy lids and a blanket under the stars in God’s own country?
The free event is taking place from 4:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Booker Park Place on Sugarwood Road.
Unfortunately, Elton John is indisposed but Mark Knopfler was available at the last minute so the Money For Nothin Dire Straits Tribute Show will play all your Dire Straits favourites accompanied by the energetic dance power house Octofunk and The John Fegan Band. And in a marvellous add-on amongst all the pros some young locals, Emily, Jensen and Ben will play their first-ever gig! Come along and give them something to remember.
The aim of this fabulous event is to celebrate community, connection, and resilience.
Kenmore Rotary has stuck their hand deep in their pockets to provide this free night as a hedge against the past two very tough years, they understand the powerful healing power of music. Brisbane City Council and The Bellbowrie Sports and Recreation Club are also supporting the event.
The night will include many food vans plus hot and cold beverages and even a breastfeed tent for new mums.
Parking will be a breeze with the wonderful folk at the Bellbowrie Shopping Plaza offering their carpark so please consider the neighbours and park there and take the short walk to the park.
Assistance will also be provided for those who need it with a courtesy bus available.
Music for nothing and the parking’s free! (There’s a song in that!) Bring a blanket or chair and the kids. Don’t miss out!
