Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony

As the sun sets across the waters of Cotton Tree, we gather to pay our respects to the Traditional Custodians of the waterways, coastal plains and hinterlands of the Sunshine Coast, the Kabi Kabi and Jinibara peoples, and open Horizon Festival 2022.

Come, sit, reflect, and welcome the start of 10 days and nights of rich programming from across the region — and Australia — including special performances from Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe, Jinibara Dance Troupe, and more.

As part of this special opening, Kabi Kabi Connections will be revealed as we open Horizon Festival 2022.

Following the Opening Ceremony and Kabi Kabi Connections reveal, be the first to experience the Opening Night performance of Le Coup as they present their extraordinary entertainment and all-round fantastic circus, and enjoy local brews, tasty food and music in the Wonderland Spiegeltent Garden.
