The Port Lincoln Tunarama Festival Inc. committee is saddened to announce that after 60 successful Tunarama Festivals, the event won’t be held in 2024 and that the committee itself will commence winding up.
“We are immensely proud as a committee of the work of past and present members, volunteers, quest ambassadors and supporters to create and uphold a tradition known as the Tunarama Festival for our community for over 60 years, however after several years of COVID and other factors, it is time for the event as we know it to end,” said Tunarama President Sharon Humenick.
“The festival has been supported by many local businesses over the years, including major partners Bendigo Community Bank, the City of Port Lincoln and the South Australian Tourism Commission, however times are changing and there is opportunity for a fresh look at the event and how it could be run in the future,” said Ms Humenick.
“I would also like to publicly thank the current Tunarama committee for their commitment and dedication over the past few months under difficult circumstances,” said Ms Humenick. (July 2023)
