Redcliffe & Surrounds – Local Events & Activities
Redcliffe Festival of Sails
Date: Friday 2nd April
Time: 9:00pm – 4:00pm
Place: Suttons Beach Park, Marine Parade, Redcliffe
This Good Friday, point the steering wheel towards Redcliffe and spend the day by the seaside at the COVID-Safe Redcliffe Festival of Sails! Packed with fun the whole family will love this Easter and the best vantage point to catch the historic Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, there’s no better place to kick off the long-weekend.
Considered one of the biggest yacht races in Australia, the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race sets the scene for this Festival. Usually occurring in the morning, the competing yachts will pass across Moreton Bay en route for Gladstone in the hopes of winning the prestigious Cup.
To get a good view of the event unfolding, bring your chairs or picnic blanket and binoculars and find a place on the beach early. Good spots tend to go fast!
Another enjoyable aspect of the Redcliffe Sails Festival is the hundreds of markets that set up every year. From arts and crafts to delicious food stalls, there is something for everyone at the market place.
Suttons Beach will come alive during Redcliffe Festival of Sails. Be sure to go and visit the Beach Zone once you get there. The first thing that will meet your eyes will be the incredible hand crafted sand sculptures. The kids will love getting their hands messy making their own sand sculptures, too, on this accessible shoreline. There really is something for everyone.
It wouldn’t be Good Friday or Festival of Sails without the Easter Bunny, making the infamous festival appearance via water this year.
The kids will love exploring the event site via the FREE Easter Bunny’s Easter Egg Hunt. Collect your treasure map and follow the clues to collect your eggs!
Every year at the Redcliffe Festival of Sails, live stage entertainment is provided all day on the Main Stage. Be sure to check it out and get your groove on! Music and entertainment make it a great day out for kids and parents alike. The full program of live music and entertainment will be confirmed closer to the event.
Journey through the Pop-up Ice-cream Fair, dedicated to everything sweet, creamy, and frozen, and set your tastebuds dancing with a selection of gourmet desserts. This dedicated zone is a dream for sweet tooths.
