Revive Pop Up Fashion Festival 2018

Friday 17th August 2018, 12pm-8pm

Cultural Forecourt, South Bank

Brisbane City Council’s annual Revive Pop Up Fashion Festival is back again for 2018! Join us on Friday 17th August at Brisbane’s Cultural Forecourt in South Bank as sellers from Brisbane and beyond come together to celebrate second-hand fashion!

This unique event celebrates second-hand fashion as a way to avoid the amount of waste sent to landfill, as well as promoting how buying second-hand fashion is a fun and affordable way to help keep Brisbane clean, green and sustainable.

2018 festival goers will be treated to shopping at Brisbane’s best revived clothing stalls, charity op shops stalls, fashion parades and live entertainment. The festival will host workshops and the opportunity to speak to onsite stylists and dine from some of the city’s favourite food trucks.
