Redcliffe Markets Festival of Frights
Get ready to set sail on a swashbuckling adventure as Festival of Frights hits the Redcliffe foreshore! Parrots and peg legs welcome, Redcliffe Markets Festival of Frights is bringing eats, beats, tricks and treats to the Redcliffe Jetty this Halloween!

For the littlest scallywags, follow clues to uncover hidden treasure in the pirate’s scavenger hunt, and head to the Octopus Garden for face painting and crafts where little ones can unleash their imagination and create their very own Jolly Roger flag and pirate bounty!
Thar she blows! Catch the spectacular fireworks display kicking off at 8.30pm, and keep your eyes peeled for haunted pirates and spooky stilt-walkers parading the foreshore. Drop anchor in front of the Redcliffe high seas, snap a skele-fun pic in the pirate graveyard and walk the plank.
