RACQ Motorfest - Sunday, 14 July 2019 - Special Deals on Accommodation at the Airport International Hotel this weekend!
The fun, atmosphere and excitement of RACQ MotorFest will return to Eagle Farm Racecourse, Ascot on Sunday, 14 July 2019. As always, the event promises to have something for everyone. Last year, thousands of car buffs and families turned out to see the 400+ prestige, vintage, unique and collector vehicles that were showcased in a colourful carnival environment.
In 2019, all the family favourites will return, including roving entertainment, gourmet food trucks and free kids’ activities including amusement rides, V8 simulator, craft activities, face painting and petting zoo. Also, for the first time this year we’ll be joined by Love Handmade Markets, who will have 40 local makers onsite with homemade goods. Entry is $2 per person with children under 3 free, with all gate takings donated to RACQ Foundation’s 2019 Flood Assistance Project directly helping farmers in North West Queensland.

Unidos de Brisbane's goal is to unite the Brisbane Samba community and bring them together, to achieve a Brazilian inspired Carnival parade.
The event aims to replicate (albeit on a smaller scale) the music, alas (sections), vibrant costumes, and incredible samba dance as components of a traditional Brazilian carnival parade.
After the parade, head to Cloudland for the after party to watch the best compete in the Australasian Samba Queen Competition.
Over 40 Men's, Mixed and Women's teams will converge on Brisbane, representing 20 nations and the very best talent that TRL has to offer.
