Moreton Kids Festival cancelled due to wet weather
Words by Ashleigh Howarth

Following the recent downpours, and more wet weather on the way, organisers of this year’s Moreton Kids Festival have made the difficult decision to cancel the event.

It was due to be held at Pine Rivers Park on Sunday, May 22.

Organisers say the decision to cancel the much-loved event was not an easy one to make and comes after months of planning and hard work to put together what they believe was going to be the best program yet.

“The recent rainfalls, in addition to the weather forecast for this weekend, have been deemed to make the event site unusable for this weekend,” organisers say.

“After extensive consultation, the site was deemed too wet to procced. With the event and setting up the event, it would cause significant damage to the park and surrounds, with postponement not an option at this stage.

“We deeply apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to bringing you Moreton Kids Festival again in 2023.”

Refunds will be issued to all ticket holders in the coming days.

Refunds will be issued to the card used to purchase the ticket – if these credit card details have changed, or the card has been cancelled, contact the organisers by emailing [email protected].

If your card details have not changed, you do not need to take any action, as the refund will happen automatically. Please allow between five and seven days for these refunds to process.

More exciting events to look forward to

There is plenty of fun to be had in the Moreton Bay Region, with organisers now setting their sights on planning the 2022 Redcliffe Kitefest, which will be held this September.

Organisers have exclusively revealed two of television’s most famous dogs – Bluey and Bingo - will be headlining the children’s show this year.

Organisers can also confirm the Hot Wheels Stunt Team will also be delighting the crowds.

Redcliffe Kitefest will be held on Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18 at Pelican Park, Clontarf.

To show their appreciation for the community’s support and understanding about the cancellation of Moreton Kids Festivals, organisers say ticketholders will have access to an exclusive presale for Redcliffe Kitefest three days prior to the tickets going on sale to the public.

Tickets on sale soon. Head to www.redcliffekitefest.com.au for more information.
