Postponed The Redlands Coast Islands Festival
We hoped that this day wouldn't come but we knew it was a risk when we commenced the planning process for the festival. After much deliberation and uncertainty created by growing interstate numbers of positive COVID-19 cases with the Delta variant along with possible further lockdowns and other restrictions in Queensland, the Redlands Coast Islands Festival Management Committee have made the difficult decision to postpone the Festival along with the Sea Market. It's our first priority to keep all our community safe and as we were looking towards a record crowd this year, we have felt this decision is the safest option for our community. We strongly believe this decision is in the best interest of all our community and postponing the Redlands Coast Islands Festival until 2022 will give time for a safer and more stable environment in the community and allow us to expand our festival program with presenting our best festival yet. Some of the smaller events that were planned to take place during the Redlands Coast Islands Festival may still take place. We will continue to promote and support these low risk events. Please stay tuned for updates. We understand the importance of community events to the wellbeing of healthy and active communities. They bring people together to connect, share, grow, dance and learn. We are currently exploring options to deliver a handful of smaller community events across the islands aimed towards our island communities. These events most likely won’t take place over the original festival long weekend. Thank you for your understanding, all our hard work will continue behind the scenes and rolled over into the 2022 Redlands Coast Islands Festival. Cheers Jeremy Staples, Shirley Lindsay and Shane Rendalls (Redlands Coast Islands Festival Management Committee)
