Residents and visitors alike will welcome the third annual Redcliffe Floral and Art Festival when it bursts into a kaleidoscope of colour this June. 

Festival coordinator, Liz Peters, said the organising committee had planned an expansive and entertaining event, which will cater to all ages.

“The festival was inspired by flower shows, held many years ago in our church. The idea of combining floral installations, art, and a meaningful community event, while highlighting our beautiful church, grew into what has become a highly successful occasion for everyone,” Mrs Peters said.

Last year’s event attracted close to 1100 visitors, who enthusiastically embraced the range of displays and activities on offer.

This year’s theme of ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Creatures Great and Small’ will be reflected in artwork provided by Redcliffe Art Society, pottery and ceramics from Redcliffe Pottery Group and the floral installations created by church members.

Additionally, the Redcliffe Lapidary Club will demonstrate the transformation from natural to crafted rocks and gems – ‘the hidden beauty within’.

Music will be provided by the Bramble Bay Ukers, the Bits and Pieces band, harmonica playing and the unique Collins pipe organ.

Mrs Peters is also excited about this year’s Kids’ Corner, which will feature a Noah’s Ark theme.

“There will be a wonderful display of the animals boarding the ark as well as soft toys and activities to enjoy.”

Attendees will also have the opportunity to sample wines as they appreciate the exhibitions. The highly sought after Devonshire Teas will also be a huge drawcard for many.

Other highlights include a beautiful painting by the late Sandra Hines, a well-known and much missed stalwart of the Redcliffe Art Society, the Mousetrap theatre group and other community organisations, which will be contributing to the raffles’ prizes. Raffles will be drawn at closing on Sunday and all floral displays will be offered up for sale.

As a completely free community event this is a not-to-be-missed outing for the whole family.
