Local festivals and things to do tend to be of a seasonal nature, often taking in the surrounding coastal scenery and ranging from food and wine, sporting events and comedy, to live music, such as jazz and blues.

The annual Noosa Festival of Surfing is especially notable and this event was first staged in 1992, when it was named the 'Noosa Malibu Classic' and immediately become one of Australia's premier amateur surfing contests. Now incorporating the World Tandem Surfing Championships, the Noosa Festival of Surfing takes place each year in early March over a six-day period around the First Point, with professionals welcomed and categories including paddleboard marathons, standup paddle and sprint open racing.
