Cool, sweet reason to enjoy Redcliffe Festival of Sails

Cool, sweet reason to head to Redcliffe Festival of Sails

The popular Pop-Up Ice Cream Fair is returning to Redcliffe Festival of Sails this Good Friday, featuring a delicious range of dessert food trucks.

It’s just one of the attractions at this year’s event at Redcliffe’s Suttons Beach on April 15 from 9am-4pm.

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) CEO Shane Newcombe is encouraging ice cream fans to get in early if there is a particular sweet treat they are keen to sink their teeth into.

“This will be the third year the Pop-Up Ice Cream Fair has been a feature at Redcliffe Festival of Sails and we’re expecting large crowds once again,” Mr Newcombe says.

“Ice cream goes hand-in-hand with the stunning seaside destination of Suttons Beach.

“Whether you’re craving deep fried ice-cream, gelato, decadent donuts, frozen yoghurt, sorbet or anything in between, we’ll have something to satisfy every sweet tooth.”

Some taste sensations to try

Kreamed has the most delicious gelato desserts, that are also a work of art.

Dipping Dots is a well-known festival treat made from fresh dairy ingredients frozen almost instantly in liquid nitrogen to create tiny frozen dots.

IcePhile specialises in deep fried ice cream. Their torched marshmallow Gaytime ice cream is a top seller. It is a pop-stick with inner vanilla ice cream, topped with a layer of Gaytime crumb then covered by marshmallow and torched before serving.

Yo-get-it Queensland will serve up the original and the best soft serve frozen yoghurt! You can even load up your frozen yogurt with delicious fresh fruit, chocolate or lollies.

Roll It Ice Cream Co. will be serving custom-made rolled ice cream, made to order in front of your eyes using fresh and exciting ingredients on -21c cold pans.

Gelato a go-go will be scooping up the best quality gelato and sorbet. Their gelato treats are gluten-free, and sorbet is dairy-free and vegan friendly.

What else is on offer at festival

Once you’ve had your fill of ice cream, there is plenty more happening at the annual Redcliffe Festival of Sails.

The program is bigger than ever this year with seven entertainment areas including a kids’ zone with a dedicated kids’ stage program.

“With an expected crowd of more than 30,000, Redcliffe Festival of Sails will provide the perfect boost for our local businesses and vendors,” Mr Newcombe says.

More than 100 market stalls will line Suttons Beach, featuring everything from clothing to homewares and pet treats and more.

Festival attendees are encouraged to use the free shuttle buses, operating from the Redcliffe showgrounds and the Kippa-Ring train station as parking around Suttons Beach will be limited.
