A Unicorn Festival is returning to Carrara Markets this weekend!

You can live out your Unicorn-filled dreams at Carrara Markets this weekend!

After the overwhelming success of last year’s first ever Unicorn Festival, the event is making a return to the Gold Coast this Saturday and Sunday.

Held inside the massive Events Arena at Carrara Markets, the festival is set to be bigger and more magical than ever, and is completely free to attend.


Once of the highlights this year will be the Unicorn Alpaca Cuddle Corner, with attendees able to get up close with the shaggy coats, floppy ears, long eyelashes and cheeky smiles of Unicorn Alpacas. Yes they really do exist!

Unicorn Pony rides will be making a return this year, with kids able to ride a gorgeously adorned pony complete with a plaited mane of pastel ribbons and a bedazzling magical unicorn horn.

The sparkles don’t end there with Unicorn food, cupcakes with rainbow swirls of buttercream, pastel coloured fairy floss and gooey rainbow iced brownies are sweet unicorn treat on offer at the festival.

Streets Ice Cream have jumped on board the Unicorn craze with the recent launch of their technicolour UniCornettos which will of course feature at the festival.

Instagram lovers can pout and pose at the festival’s Unicorn Selfie Booths after being bedazzled with a Unicorn makeover at the Glitter Beauty Bar with 11-year-old Sophia Rizzo of Glitter Girl.

There’ll also be over 50 Unicorn Market Stalls, a Unicorn Arts & Craft Zone, a Unicorn Kids Disco and so much more.

The Unicorn Festival is on at Carrara Markets on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October from 9am to 3pm in the Events Arena. For more information, visit: facebook.com/unicornfestivalgoldcoast
