Redlands Easter Family Festival

Free family celebration
Attracting 15 000 visitors annually, this family friendly Easter festival is powering into its fourteenth year. Gracing the Cleveland Showgrounds on Easter Monday from 10.00am - 4.00pm, the event promises a full day of fun and excitement for the entire family at no cost. That's right it's free - and I don't mean entry is free and then you pay for everything else, it is absolutely free.

It is thanks to the hard work and benevolence of a number of Redlands churches, sponsorship from local businesses, the support of local council and an army of volunteers that this free day of celebration is possible.

As a family you can enjoy free carnival rides, a land train, face painting, animal farm and petting zoo, street theatre and fun activities such as mural painting and balloon twisting. Be entertained by a variety of live performances across three stages including the magic of an illusionist and the heavenly harmonics of the Redlands City Choir.

There will also be a chance to meet your favourite super heroes with appearances from the likes of Superman, Spiderman, Catwoman, Batman and the Green Lantern. And when you need to refuel, partake of the free sausage sizzle, sandwiches, donuts, tea, coffee and cordial on hand to sate your hunger.

And while the free food, rides and entertainment may be a drawcard the festival humbly offers a powerful message of generosity and unity of spirit. Take time to remember the true meaning of Easter and visit the Prayer and Healing Tent, the Tent of Promise for an amazing mural of biblical history, or the Soul Food Cafe for a coffee, cake and chat.
