Tickets to the 2024 Redcliffe KiteFest are expected to sell fast with headline act Emma Memma locked in for the event which will also feature fun for the whole family and exhilarating kite displays.

Redcliffe KiteFest is on September 14 and 15 at Clontarf’s Pelican Park.

Emma Memma’s children’s show is guaranteed to have the kids dancing. The popular performer’s debut album won the Best Children’s Album at the 2023 ARIA Awards.

There will also be a myriad of activities, including international and domestic kite flying displays, children's shows, carnival rides, food stalls offering delicious culinary delights, and market stalls.

Moreton Bay City Council Mayor Peter Flannery says this signature event is fun for the whole family but also important to the community on another level.

“Redcliffe KiteFest not only generates a considerable economic contribution for the City of Moreton Bay but stands as a beacon of joy and family fun for both locals and visitors alike,” Mayor Flannery says.

“Each year, it draws in more and more residents and tourists to experience the wonders of the Moreton Bay and is a highlight of Council’s commitment to providing enriching, family-friendly events and fostering a vibrant community spirit.”

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism CEO Natassia Wheeler says there is a significant economic benefit for the region.

"The Redcliffe KiteFest in the City of Moreton Bay is Australia’s premier kite event and draws visitation from not just domestic but also international markets such as India and China,” Ms Wheeler says.

“After 28 years, it continues to grow and generate significant economic contribution to the local economy with this year expecting to be over $4 million.

“The Redcliffe KiteFest is an integral part of Tourism and Events Queensland It's Live! in Queensland calendar, showcasing the tremendous appeal it holds for the local community and tourists.”

Redcliffe KiteFest is proudly supported by Major Sponsor City of Moreton Bay and delivered by Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT).
