A Festival All About CommunityJul 21, 2016


RedFest is an annual music and cultural festival held in Cleveland, just 25 minutes east of Brisbane on the magnificent Moreton Bay.

From the 2 – 4th of September, Redland Showgrounds is transformed into a thriving community of its own, with hundreds of performers, food vendors and locals setting up camp and coming together for one of Queensland’s best local festivals. It’s a not-for-profit event, with hardworking volunteers maintaining its ethos – a festival delivered by the community for the community.

The festival’s history holds special sentiment, starting off as a Strawberry Festival back in 1953 by local strawberry farmers who were experiencing an oversupply of produce. It festival would allow them to come together and showcase their hard work to the rest of the community. The festival was moved to the Cleveland Show Grounds in 1965 to promote local strawberries and provide vital funds for local community groups and organisations, and today, RedFest is all about embracing changes happening within the community, with strawberries still ever present.

The festival’s events include the world famous strawberry eating competition, street parade, strawberry queens, strawberry ball, talent contests, rodeos, bicycle races, animal displays, side show alley, workshops, entertainment and heaps more.

You only find these types of gatherings outside of the big city, with the community spirit palpable in the air, so head down to Cleveland and enjoy this amazing festival, unlike many others.
