A festive street party that last year attracted an estimated 10,000 people is set to again kick off end-of-year celebrations.

The Caloundra Christmas Street Party will bring more than 100 artisan stalls, entertainment, street food and festive cheer to Bulcock Street on Friday, December 1.

The annual event is organised by the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce market team and the Downtown Caloundra Taskforce.

Caloundra Chamber of Commerce market manager Rosina Harris said her team wanted to make this year’s party even more exciting.

“Like our Caloundra Street Fair and the Caloundra and Currimundi twilight markets, the Christmas Street Party will attract thousands of shoppers to Bulcock Street,” she said.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our stallholders and retailers to start the busy Christmas period.”

The event will boast live music, a kids’ ride, Christmas carols, dancers, roving entertainment and shopfront displays created by Caloundra’s shop owners.

Mrs Harris said the event attracted tourists to the Caloundra region and provided locals with a fun family night out.

“The Caloundra Christmas Street Party is for everyone, including the young and the young at heart,” she said.

Caloundra Business Alliance chairperson Kim McCosker said the street party would kick off a month of festivities in Caloundra.

“The Caloundra Christmas Street Party will go off like a frog in a sock, and the best news is it is just the start of a Christmas festival in Caloundra,” she said.

“This Christmas, it’s all about community spirit in Caloundra.”

Known as Queensland’s Top Tourism Town, Caloundra is also home to the Christmas Tree Lane Celebration, where 50 businesses have decorated unique Christmas trees at The Strand.

Mrs McCosker said there was more than $1000 worth of prizes to be won, including diamond earrings, jewellery vouchers, gift cards and discounts.

Santa will also be in residence from December 11-15, with photos available from 9-11am.

Caloundra Chamber of Commerce CEO Brady Sullivan said the organisation was proud to collaborate with the Downtown Caloundra Taskforce to bring the annual street party to life.

“Our markets and community events, such as the Christmas and Winter Wunderland Street Parties, are a fantastic platform for local businesses with many owners using the events as an opportunity to grow their business,” he said.

“They are also a wonderful opportunity for the Sunshine Coast community to come together and celebrate the festive season.”
