Posted: 12pm 13 Jan 2021

Samford is hitting 2021 on a high note, with Music Under the Stars returning in February.

The event is moving to Alan Cash Park to allow for more patrons under Coronavirus restrictions.

With music, food trucks, artisan markets and entertainment for children, Music Under the Stars is scheduled for February 20

Mayor Peter Flannery says he’s thrilled the event is back for 2021.

“The night will be packed with live music, indulgent food trucks, artisan markets and plenty of fun for the kids.

“Kids will stay entertained with a soft play area, silent disco and art and craft cart.”

Handmade heaven

Mayor Flannery says the twilight markets will feature the best in handmade, sustainable design and wares.

Artists performing include The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Experience, The Voice Australia 2016 finalist Ellen Reed, looping master Daniel J. Lewis and The Angel Strings Quartet.

Safety a priority

Division 11 Councillor Darren Grimwade says he can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the much-loved event.

“Community safety is our top priority, so attendees will register upon arrival and we thank you for following all directions from our event staff,” Councillor Grimwade says.

“Treat yourself at the array of food trucks on offer and make sure you drop in and say hello to the Samford Stags Rugby League Club, who will be running the bar.

“Gates open at 3.30pm with the event running 4pm to 8pm, so mark your calendar, bring your blanket and come down for night beneath the stars.”

The event has limited capacity and will follow a COVID Safe Plan approved by Queensland Health.

All attendees will be required to register on arrival using QR code check-in.

Samford Music Under the Stars is a free event presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
