Information extracted from the Noosa Events Website: In May, Noosa comes alive with the Noosa MayFiesta. The MayFiesta is not just one fantastic Noosa festival “ it is a whole series of fantastic Noosa festivals scattered through towns across the Sunshine Coast map. Originally this Noosa Festival was to attract people to the Sunshine Coast area when the Noosa weather was still warm and Sunshine Coast holiday accommodation bookings were not in peak demand. First for the Noosa May Fiesta, you have the Celebration of Australian food and Wine, Noosa Style. During this event Australia's top chefs, winemakers, restaurateurs and general food lovers mingle to learn, taste and explore the best Australian produce. Join a food trails from farm to table, take a class or enjoy the results when guest chefs take over local Noosa restaurants. You can turn the clock back to the 1950s and 60's with Rock'n'Tewantin “ 10 days of rock n' roll dance competitions and concerts, hot rod displays, 10 pin bowling nights. To taste the best of local Sunshine Coast produce, book a spot at the Long Table Dinner, part of the Eumundi Food Festival. For the best of the rest of the world, visit the Global Food Festival along Thomas Street, Noosaville. To work off all the great food, take part in the Noosa Blue Water Swim held in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast “ one of the richest ocean races in Australia. To top it all off, head down to the Noosa Harbour in Noosa Queensland for the Mayfiesta with Latin style salsa dancing and music.
