Unicorn Festival


After the overwhelming success of last year’s first ever Unicorn Festival, there’s no doubt the Unicorn craze is here to stay.

The 2019 Unicorn Festival at Carrara Markets will be bigger and better ready to cater for the abundance of Unicorn lovers on the Gold Coast and beyond!

So what is a Unicorn Festival? It is an experience that is beautiful, magical and fun, and happening on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th October from 9am to 3pm at Events Arena at Carrara Markets.

Plus there’s FREE entry and FREE parking!!

Start the festival with the most wonderous of experiences at the Unicorn Alpaca Cuddle Corner. Whilst the Unicorn is the ultimate symbol of hope and joy. Just wait to be seduced by the shaggy coats, floppy ears, long eyelashes and cheeky smiles of the Unicorn Alpacas. Yes they really do exist!

Don’t worry, children are still fascinated with Unicorn Pony rides a firm favourite at the Unicorn Festival. Kids have no difficulty using their imagination riding a gorgeously adorned pony complete with a plaited mane of pastel ribbons and a bedazzling magical unicorn horn.

As for Unicorn food, well the more sparkles and edible glitter the better! Cupcakes with rainbow swirls of buttercream, pastel coloured fairy floss and gooey rainbow iced brownies are sweet unicorn treat on offer at the festival. Even Streets Ice Cream have jumped on board the Unicorn craze with the recent launch of their technicolour UniCornettos. The most instagrammable ice cream ever will of course feature at the festival.
