Nambour Winter Jazz Fest received $8731 to help deliver its 2018 event on 21 July.

Sunshine Coast residents will be able to cosy up with cool tunes this July after the Nambour Winter Jazz Fest received Queensland Arts Showcase Program funding.
Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said the festival had received $8731 to help deliver its 2018 event on 21 July.
“The Nambour Winter Jazz Fest is becoming a highlight of the state’s jazz calendar, and this year’s headliner Vince Jones is sure to draw many fans,” Ms Enoch said.
“I’m pleased the Government’s QASP funding can assist diverse arts and cultural experiences like this, with fine wine and food to accompany the great music available across the festival’s two venues.”
Ms Enoch said the Sunshine Coast would also benefit from $50,000 in funding awarded to the Queensland Poetry Festival.
“Now in its 11th year, the Festival hub will be in Brisbane from 23-26 August, but this funding will allow organisers to develop regional satellite events, including one on the Sunshine Coast.”
Ms Enoch said the two projects were among 13 across Queensland that would share in funding totalling $415,065 from the latest round of QASP.
“Through QASP, the Palaszczuk Government has invested $8.2 million in more than 250 projects since September 2015, creating opportunities and experiences for Queenslanders either as an arts worker, participant or audience member.”
Minister Enoch said QASP has supported the development of arts and cultural experiences throughout Queensland and made it possible for the state’s talent to be showcased locally, nationally and overseas.
