The annual festival of Redland City began many years ago as a celebration of its fertile soil and glorious strawberries, but it has evolved to embrace music and culture along with the food and family fun.
Headline acts in 2017 are Aria nominees Justice Crew, and country music favourite Troy Cassar-Daley. They’re joined on the program by 60 local performances. Quandamooka people have their own displays, and there are a lantern parade and fireworks into the night.
Then there are community groups who will be sharing their passions with visitors to the festival, including the Eastern Districts Orchid Society, the Bayside Woodturners & Woodcrafters club, and the Wynnum Redlands Budgerigar Society.
The event runs from September 8-10, and most of the activity centres around the showground at Cleveland.
