Gig Guide: What's on in Gympie this weekend

Friday, September 22

The Royal Hotel Gympie

ARIA nominated singer-songwriter Harry Hookey will take his winning blend of blues, roots and rock to Gympie.

Supported by fellow performer Ruby Gilbert, the show starts from 8pm.

We can think of no better way to kick off your weekend.

Tickets are $10.

Mount Pleasant Hotel

Local pub favourite Two Jam are rocking the Mount Pleasant from 7pm to 11pm.

All are welcome as they send you rocking well into the night.

The Gympie RSL

Billing themselves as "just great Australian music” says it all really, with duo Ausphonic to perform its first "real Gympie gig” at the RSL.

Show starts at 7.30pm.

Saturday, September 23

Tin Can Bay Seafood Festival

One of, if not the biggest days on the local calendar for Tin Can Bay, the annual seafood festival is about to roll through the town once again.

Just a short drive away, and set against the beautiful backdrop of the Tin Can esplanade, the festival is providing a full day of activities sure to the impress and entertain all ages during these school holidays.

The star of the show is undoubtedly the incredible range of fresh, local seafood on offer throughout the day.

But beyond a primo prawn or two, there's still plenty more to experience too, with live music, stalls and more.

It all kicks off on Saturday.

The Gympie Showgrounds

Call us biased, but we're feeling pretty confident this weekend will deliver the best race day on the calendar so far this year.

The Gympie Times Ladies Race Day has come around once again, promising a full day of live entertainment, food, drinks and of course plenty of action on the racetrack.

Continuing the theme of Black and White, it's a great excuse to get dressed up and soak up the atmosphere at the Gympie Showgrounds.

And while the competition on the track will surely get punters' hearts racing, that's nothing on the stakes at the fashions of the field.

Gates open at 11am this Saturday.

The Gympie Jungle

Perfect for families and little ones with a love for games, the Boarding School event is a fantastic way to get the mind racing these school holidays.

The Gympie Jungle has joined forces with the good folks at Big Family, Little Income and The Goof Review for a night of board games and activities at this local favourite.

Entry for kids is $5, with adults free.

It runs from 6pm to 9pm, with dinner available from the Jungle.

The Gympie RSL

Time to dust off those shoulder-pads and get the hairspray out, Gympie.

Rockers Baktrak will be taking you to the 80s from 7.30pm at the RSL.
