I scream ice cream at Redcliffe Festival of Sails

WHAT: Redcliffe Festival of Sails
Good Friday, March 30, 2018
WHERE: Suttons Beach, Redcliffe

EVERY year Redcliffe Festival of Sails grows bigger as more events are added to the day to make it a wonderful experience for all ages – and we’re talking bubs to grand parents.

Offshore after 11am
Get down to the beach in the morning to witness the majestic sight of a fleet of yachts competing in the 70th Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, which sets off from Shorncliffe, Moreton Bay.

Up in the sky at 10am
A skydiving Easter Bunny floats to terra firma with a basket of chocolate treats – kids only please! (weather permitting)

On the sand from 9am-4pm
Watch professional sand sculptors mould sand into works of art and participate in sand sculpting workshops.

Try your hand at beach cricket and beach volleyball – bikinis optional.

Action everywhere else
On its way to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), The Queen’s Baton Relay will pass through Redcliffe held proudly aloft by Redcliffe Mum, Michelle Wardle.

You might not know her but Michelle is a local legend, having completed an Olympic standard triathlon just seven weeks after she finished 10 months of treatment for breast cancer. In doing this, she raised more than $20,000 for three charities.

If that isn’t enough, for the first time a mini ice-cream festival will be held within the festival. Expect experimental taste sensations that stretch beyond vanilla.

Entertainment will take place on the main stage and acoustic performers on northern and southern stages.

The kids zone will host a pop-up library and free craft workshops.

Market stalls and rides and amusements will enliven the festival atmosphere.
