The program for Redcliffe KiteFest has been announced as tickets go on sale and little ones get excited about seeing headliners Bluey and Bingo on the Sesame Lane Main Stage.
The favourites of the small screen will be on the big stage for two shows each day of KiteFest, which runs from September 11 and 12 at Clontarf’s Pelican Park from 9am-4pm.
They are just one of the acts on the Sesame Lane Main Stage joining a line-up of children’s and musical entertainment throughout the event.
The program for the 2021 event will feature crowd favourites including: the KiteFest Kidz Zone, KiteFest Karnival, Kite Flying Arena, Public Kite Flying Zone, Ocean/Sky Zone, food, market stalls and more.
Redcliffe KiteFest is organised by Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) and Kites Queensland in partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council.
Mayor Peter Flannery says they will be pulling out all the stops for KiteFest after the disappointment of having to cancel Festival of Sails due to COVID restrictions.
“We’re all looking for an excuse to party, so you’d better get in and get your tickets quick,” he says.
“If you’ve never been to KiteFest before, I promise there’s no better place to be in South East Queensland than the sparkling blue waters of Moreton Bay on a clear spring day with a kaleidoscope of kites in the sky.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind event and a true spectacle to behold.”
MBRIT Chairman Shane Newcombe says it is the ultimate family weekend, with activities, stage shows and thrills to excite all members of the family.
“The addition of the very popular Bluey to this year’s program takes the event to new heights and we can’t wait for September,” Mr Newcombe says.
“Tickets are on sale now and we’re encouraging everyone to book online to save themselves time and money.”
