Brisbane Festival: Join the Redcliffe Kitefest for a Safe and Fun Family Activity

Looking for a safe but fun event to do with your family at the Brisbane Festival? Drive down to Pelican Park for the Redcliffe Kitefest, a low-cost outdoor activity that will surely keep the whole family engaged.

Happening on 11 and 12 Sept 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Redcliffe KiteFest will feature colourful kite displays from international and local kite flyers. Soak in the fresh air and connect with nature as you watch those dazzling and majestic kites up in the air.

The event will also feature a kite-making workshop, which will give guests the chance to learn  from the experts about the proper designs and the tricks of the trade. Flying a kite can be such a relaxing activity, especially for the children, who will need to focus on what they’re doing whilst their kites fly across the open, blue sky.

Apart from the kite event, Redcliffe Kitefest will also have aerobatic displays, jet ski stunt shows, and stage performances to delight kids of all ages. Characters like Bluey and Bingo will be dancing live on the stage.

A special Kidz Zone will be installed to feature BrizBricks Lego display and workshops, face painting, jumping castles, merry-go-round, pony rides, and a petting zoo.
