While the free food, rides and entertainment for all ages are popular draw cards, the festival is not just about hosting a free day out, it provides a unique venue for Churches to engage with the wider community, connecting with people at their point of need or interest and demonstrating a unity of Spirit and service, on a scale, not achieved through other ventures.
Key to the festival's success is that it is an activity of the wider churches in the Redlands. It seeks to represent the breadth and depth of the local Christian communities. Churches are urged to participate in the festival through an active involvement in its planning and operation so that a diverse range of ministries, services, talents, insights and experiences can be shared.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to all the volunteers who showed a Christian servant's attitude to the thousands of visitors at last year's Easter Festival 2019.
The committee would also like to thank the Redland City Council as the major sponsor of the Festival - along with many corporate sponsors and local churches who made the festival possible by their generous donations. Last year's 2019 Redlands Easter Family Festival was an outstanding success with about 20,000 people enjoying the hospitality provided by more than 400 volunteers and entertainers.
