We are again treating our patrons to a culinary experience at this year’s CMF, as we continue to take festival food to the next level!
Festival patrons are invited to take a food journey over the four days of Sun, Surf & Soul, and by visiting each of the fabulous vendor locations on offer throughout the festival site, you will be delighted with a feast for all their senses.
From Soul Food to Sunshine Boulevard and down to Surf Side each food precinct offers delicious treats and yummy eats.
Info for Funky Forest Stalls & Workshops
The Funky Forest is a mini festival within the festival – a wonderland of fun, creativity and discovery!
Each year we will run a variety of workshops and activities over the four days of Sun, Surf and Soul.
There is limited space available for “market” style stalls but preference is given to stalls/businesses that can offer a free or very low cost interactive activity to children and families during the festival.
If you wish to be part of the Funky Forest program of activities and Workshops – please email us at [email protected]
Located above the Soul Stage (main amphitheatre of the festival), the Soul Food zone will be dedicated to food stalls offering Soul Food inspired menus, with Food Stalls specially selected to create an overall vibe of Soul and Funk in this area.
So what is Soul Food? Think Americana, Jazz and Blues Bars. Think food that is good for the Soul, home cooking like Grandma used to make. The Soul Food movement originates from the Southern United States and features home-style basics like fried chicken, corn on the cob, pork ribs, and pecan pie alongside some Australian soul food inspired options as well.
Featuring a variety of colourful stalls, alongside the lush rainforest in close proximity to the Sun Stage, Sun Bar and the Funky Forest. Sunshine Boulevard is one of our most popular dining spots and has a family friendly feel about it. Sunshine Boulevard is perfect for a casual, vibrant and colourful dining experience!
Think coffees, desserts, healthy fresh options, juice bars, dumplings and crowd favouries like hot chips and potato slinkies!
Located in the Surf Stage precinct of the Festival, the Surf Side zone will pay homage to surf culture on the Sunshine Coast. Surf Side will feature on-trend, unique Food Trucks and Caravans that have a surf/beach look and feel. Think weathered wood, surf boards, old kombis, retro beach colours.
Food variety will consist of stalls serving fresh and healthy options, classic fish, fresh seafood and chips, smoothies and juice bars and asian delights just to name a few.
