RedFest a Community Festival since 1953

RedFest is community festival held in September in Redlands Coast, just 25 minutes east of Brisbane on beautiful Moreton Bay.

RedFest a Community Event by the  Redlands Community

RedFest is Redland City’s premier event and boasts musicians and artists from across the region. For two days, the Redlands Showground becomes a magical blaze of colour, a symphony of beautiful sounds, and a celebration of our amazing community. With performers – singers, dancers, poets, and artists entertaining and sharing their skills across the entire showground venue with a jam-packed program.

The ticket prices are the envy of all festivals – there is simply no better value offered anywhere else for this amazing program. Kids are KING with a venue and program just for them, Sideshow alley, and spectacular fireworks.

RedFest is a not-for-profit community organisation – a festival delivered by the community, for the community. Each year a hardworking volunteer Committee develops the program for RedFest and actively seeks sponsorship to support the cost of producing the event for Festival Patrons.
