Redcliffe Celebrates This Weekend

If you are looking for a feast of music and entertainment for all members of the family, then Redcliffe is the place to be this weekend for the Redcliffe Festival. The three-day seaside celebration will feature music, market stalls, food, entertainment, workshops and historical re-enactments, along with plenty of action in the sky and on the water.

The festivities kick off on Friday evening (September 5) with two separate party events at Pelican Park on the foreshore at Clontarf. A Spring Break Beach Party will provide free rides all night and a live performance from Justice Crew, while Kitefest Live is an 18+ event featuring music from Mark Seymour, Daryl Braithwaite and The Choirboys.
