Celebrate Glasshouse Country
Celebrate Glasshouse Country Inc. is a vibrant not for profit group led by passionate community volunteers. We are committed to strengthening the identity of the Glasshouse Country region by supporting connected communities. We encourage community pride through participation, and are excited to explore ways to enhance community, tourism and business growth through involvement in local events, projects and initiatives.
Our offices are located @The Hub, near the Beerwah Sportsground complex where we facilitate a unique community owned space. Consisting of offices, meeting rooms and a local community venue space for hire, @ The Hub has been co-created ‘for the community – by the community.’
We genuinely love our local Glasshouse Country region with its stunning natural beauty, active communities and thriving growth opportunities for local businesses and tourism. We are excited to be able to support, collaborate and connect with a network of equally committed local community groups, and we encourage opportunity to boost local knowledge, business and tourism. Join us in celebrating and sharing our beautiful Glasshouse Country Region.
Glasshouse Country included the towns of Beerburrum, Glass House Mountains, Beerwah, Peachester, Mooloolah and the locales of Glenview and Palmview.
For those not familiar with our beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland region that includes the spectacular Glass House Mountains Glasshouse Country, we say “come for a day…come for a stay!”
In previous years, Celebrate Glasshouse Country Inc. has been instrumental in organising the hugely popular ‘Glasshouse Country Street Parties’, which brought local communities and businesses together.
The idea to form a local community led organisation began in 2014, with our group initially known as ‘Celebrate Beerwah Inc’. Run by passionate community members, the current association was established following the success of the ‘Beerwah Street Party’ in 2015. This large scale community celebration formed part of the launch for the revitalised street scaping of Simpson Street, Beerwah supported by Sunshine Coast Council.
With collaboration and commitment from local community groups, organisations and businesses this all inclusive community festival was a wonderful way to bring the Glasshouse Country communities together and build community pride and spirit.
In order to better reflect our work across the whole of Glasshouse Country region, our name was officially changed to ‘Celebrate Glasshouse Country Inc. As an organisation we wanted to act as a unifying support for other community groups in Glasshouse Country, and bring a regional approach to events, festivals and tourism in the area.
The success of the 2015 street party was followed up in 2017 by yet another massively successful event which further highlighted the unique and festive spirit of the people and townships that make up the broader Glasshouse Country region. With organisers estimating attendance figures of around 10,000 people, the street parties were highly anticipated community events and 2019, saw yet another stellar street part event held in October of that year.
In recent years with event restrictions due to COVID-19, our association has explored new ways to facilitate community and business partnerships and have focussed on co-creating a community hub space and connecting community groups throughout the region.
