An Eggstra-Special Family-Orientated Festival of Fun in the Sun

With beach sports, live music and Easter-themed entertainment, plus kite displays, animal attractions and children's activities, all rounded-off with hundreds of market stalls – everyone is sure to be kept busy all day long enjoying the sights and sounds of this waterside paradise.

A Treasure Hunt!

Hop over to the Event Information Tent upon arrival to pick-up a Pirate Passport for the kids. This fun and simple treasure hunt activity will keep young ones engaged and entertained as you make your way around the market stalls.

Children must visit each stall pictured to receive a Pirate Passport stamp. Once all stamps are acquired, bring the completed Pirate Passport back to the Information Tent to enter the draw to win 1 of 5 Easter goodie packs!

Live Entertainment

Keep the Easter Family Fun Going after the Festival!
