Free family festival on Easter Sunday they will love

The Ocean Street World Festival is a one day festival held on Easter Sunday each year in Maroochydore.

For those who are not spending the day at home celebrating Easter, this is a great way to enjoy a day out with friends and family.

The festival runs from 10am to 10pm through Ocean Street and nearby avenues. Now in it's sixth year, the whole precinct joins in with the festivities.

The festival is an initiative of the local community organisation and is a celebration of world cultures, music and food.

Parking is available in the nearby Big Top shopping centre or Sunshine Plaza.

Bringing together the different cultures of the Sunshine Coast, you'll find food from different nationalities, live music from around the world and lots of pop up markets. Nearby shops, cafes and restaurant open for the day to celebrate.

Come and check out the live music of the Sunshine Coast's favourite hangout, the Solbar. Ocean Street is also home to the Post Office Bar, the Piano Bar, the Greenout Healthy Cafe, Fusion on Ocean, Peak Wine Bar and the Machu Picchu South American Bar.

There's so much to offer in this area. The organisers put on fun entertainment for the kids as well.

This day gets very crowded so if you're going for lunch or dinner, grab a seat early. It's a great initiative of the local area to join everyone together to celebrate the cultural diversity of the Sunshine Coast.

The festival is held at Ocean Street, Maroochydore. Entry is free, just wander in and start browsing the wonderful stalls, shops and cafes. Bring a hat, it can still get warm at this time of year.
