For 60 years, the eastern suburbs of Brisbane have celebrated a red, juicy and delicious fruit. RedFest Strawberry Festival is about more than its eponymous foodstuff; however it's definitely the place to be if you're keen on strawberry sundaes, jams, wine, scones, salads and smoothies.

Think that you can eat more strawbs than anyone else? Unsurprisingly, an eating contest forms part of the fun. Want to wander around the Redland Showgrounds dressed as a strawberry? You'll be in your element. There's also a strawberry parade, filled with strawb-themed floats. And yes, the word strawberry will be uttered so many times that it'll lose all meaning.

Running over three days from Friday, September 6 to Sunday, September 8, the full program also spans general show shenanigans — such as music, arts and cultural displays, a sideshow alley, a lantern parade and fireworks. Oh, and a heap of food other than strawberries. The actual lineup of performers is yet to be announced, but more than 300 acts will be involved.

RedFest Strawberry Festival runs from 5–9pm on Friday, 9am–9pm on Saturday and 9am–4pm on Sunday, with adult tickets starting from $15.
