Redcliffe KiteFest 2018

Brisbane's breezy weekend festival returns.

There really is a festival dedicated to everything you can think of. We've said it before, and we know we'll say it again. Still, given that Redcliffe has a two-day fest dedicated to flying kites, we know that the statement is accurate.

Yep, it's the event your inner seven-year-old will love — and, let's be honest, your adult self will too. It's a breezy way to spend the weekend, that's for sure. It's also a celebration of the simple pleasure of letting the wind catch a brightly coloured combination of wood, string and fabric, and then watching it soar.

Of course, KiteFest is exactly what you make of it, whether something peaceful or action-packed is on your personal agenda. If you just want to stare at the sky, you can do that. If you want to browse market stalls, listen to live music, hop on a few carnival rides, watch roving performers and more — including world-class professional kite flyers, high-flying fly board performers, back-flipping sky skis and high-speed jet ski routines — you can do that too.
