BESIDES the country ute display and between the field of deck chairs, the Beauy Muster has a good cause at is core.

The annual event is returning this year with the traditional all-genre music performances, car and ute displays and renowned country hospitality, but it will also aid two community organisations.

This year's event aims to raise awareness for Mates4Mates, a charity focusing on supporting military personnel and their families as well as Lights on the Hill.

Lights on the Hill is a Gatton organisation aimed at remembering national truck drivers who were killed in their line of work.

Organiser and owner Michael Whyte said the Beauy Muster was known for its laid-back atmosphere, family friendly hospitality and good music.

"People that are in the country can get together and put on their dancing boots and kick back with a few farmers they might not have had the chance to get to know," he said.

"Everyone can quite happily walk around and have a chat."
