Membership

The Sunshine Coast Festival of the Performing Arts is a volunteer-driven endeavor.  Community volunteers help organize and enure that the various events run smoothly. Festival supporters are encouraged to become SCFPA Society members at $10 a year. For more than forty years our Festival has promoted development of diverse performance skills in our talent-rich community.
