Get ready to start your engines for the exciting new event, Cruisin’ Caboolture, roaring into town on April 30.

Cruisin’ Caboolture will feature a Show and Shine Car Show with more than 120 vehicles for motoring enthusiasts to admire, plus live music and children’s activities including face painting, rock climbing and workshops. Entry is free.

If cars and live music aren’t enough, the event will also feature a range of local craft brews and food trucks to delight visitors’ taste buds.

Cruisin’ Caboolture is a family friendly afternoon in Caboolture’s James St precinct and the perfect opportunity to admire elegant cars and immerse yourself in quality local entertainment.

Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Adam Hain (Div 3) says the event will have something for everyone, not just rev-heads.

“Make sure you don’t miss out because there will free music and entertainment filling the James Street precinct all day from 10am through to 3pm,” Cr Hain says.

“We’ll even have free face painting for the kids, a rock climbing wall and a car plaster painting station.

“Of course for motoring enthusiasts the cars will be the main drawcard, and with more than 100+ cars on show you can expect to see everything from the classics through to Hot Rods and customed modified masterpieces.

“I’m already revved up! And can’t wait to see James St come alive with food trucks, local craft brews, and stallholders.”

Mayor Peter Flannery says Council is committed to providing free activities for locals, especially as living costs increase.

“It’s free, it’s live, it’s local and I want to see a lot more of these kinds of events in our neighbourhoods because it’s close enough to home that you don’t have to pay for parking in Brisbane or get stuck on the Bruce,” Mayor Flannery says.

“Cruisin’ Caboolture is a new event on our calendar and I’m really keen to hear from locals their ideas on how we can expand our music, events, and entertainment programs to make them even better for you.

“I’m very, very serious about investing in our local lifestyle before Moreton Bay gets any bigger, that’s why this year we almost doubled the number of community events on our social calendar.

“Since launching this year’s calendar we’ve seen people turn out en masse, so clearly it’s an important civic service to provide.”
