GoldCoast Oceanfest, the multi award winning, family friendly Oceanside festival are stoked to announce Parkdean Resorts, the owners of Ruda and Croyde Beach as the lead sponsor for GoldCoast Oceanfest until 2018.
If you could bottle a beachside festival and pour it out each year against the backdrop of a sun-drenched Atlantic, then #Oceanfest16 might be just the brew to choose. It’s big enough to create a great party atmosphere, small enough not to be overwhelming. It blends a potentially intoxicating, eclectic and laid back mix of quality music, exhilarating surf, action packed sports, locally sourced food and family-friendly fun.
Parkdean have long been involved with the Oceanfest supporting numerous aspects of the production and now as headline sponsors their involvement in Devon’s coolest and longest running surf and music festival is even more enhanced. The partnership will see support by accommodating sponsors, athletes, musicians and media at Ruda Park. Parkdean will also remain sponsors of the established and hugely respected Beach Volleyball event delivered by the Academy of Beach Sports.
Parkdean Chief Executive, John Waterworth was delighted to extend the company’s involvement, commenting “To be able to support such a long standing community grassroots production such as GoldCoast Oceanfest, offers Parkdean the opportunity to bring an exciting event to our family holidaymakers whilst showcasing the fantastic beauty of Croyde making this sponsorship a great fit for us!”
This year, Parkdean shall be in the entertaining company of headline acts DJ Fresh, Sunset Sons and KT Tunstall for a memorable weekend of surf and music, whilst creating good family times, great music, keeping fit and looking after the environment.
Warren Latham, Director at GoldCoast Oceanfest said, “We are amped to have Parkdean’s huge sponsorship support, as we look toward this year and ahead to our 19th and 20th Oceanfest productions too.”
