RedFest’s 60th Festival will kick off on Friday 7th September from 5:30pm and will continue all weekend with an exceptional lineup of music, entertainment and workshops that will delight the whole family.
For music lovers, the program is jam-packed with fabulous entertainment including the Aria Award winning Rogue Traders who will keep the party thriving on Saturday night, and concluding with one of Australia’s most enduring and respected artists, Ross Wilson, performing live on Sunday afternoon.
Not only is this year’s program overflowing with the very best entertainment - the program also provides high quality activities, workshops, displays and exhibitions which is sure to keep families busy for the entire weekend – all included in the one low festival ticket price.
With favourites such as the World Famous Strawberry Eating Competition, the delicious strawberry ice creams, spectacular lantern parade, two nights of incredible fireworks, free hands on activities including strawberry pot painting, lantern making, beading and art workshops, free face painting, free circus workshops, dance and physical fitness workshops there really is something for the whole family to enjoy. And for the first time in many years all festival attendees will receive free entry into the Redlands Museum during the festival.
After 60 years, there is no doubt that the festival has come a long way, but what hasn’t changed is the pride of place the RedFest Strawberry Festival holds in the hearts of the many locals and visitors across Redlands Coast, Queensland and Australia. As one of Australia’s oldest and largest festivals, RedFest Strawberry Festival continues to provide plenty of fun and enjoyment for the thousands of people that attend. This year promises to be no exception!
