Curryfest waking up with a Sunrise

AS IF Curryfest's 10th birthday wasn't exciting enough - the community festival just received a pretty amazing gift to celebrate.

Woolgoolga and its signature event will be in the national spotlight this week when Australia's most popular morning show, Sunrise, comes to town.

On Tuesday, the Sunrise weather crew will be filming from the Woolgoolga Beach Reserve, promoting Woolgoolga Curryfest in September.

"This is really exciting not just for Curryfest but for Woolgoolga as a community," event manager Tegan Ewart said.

"It's a chance for us to show the nation just how spectacular the event is going to be and how incredible our community spirit is."

Organisers will be creating a mini-festival atmosphere for the filming, including curry cooking demonstrations, dance performances, meditation, sitar playing and henna tattoos.

There will be a number of crosses back to Kochie and Sam at Sunrise HQ throughout the morning, with approximately 350,000 viewers plugging into the show daily.

Filming will start at Woolgoolga Beach Reserve from 6am, with everyone invited to come down, be part of the mini-festival atmosphere and maybe even get their 15 minutes of fame on national TV.

"We'd love as many people as possible to come down and share the excitement," Tegan said.

"Let's show them why Woolgoolga is such an amazing place."
