A little bit of housekeeping…Valley Fiesta is a FREE, non-ticketed event for all ages! However, it is worth noting that some venues are strictly 18+, so if you’re planning on heading in with younger families it is best to check venues before you arrive. There will be plenty of ATMs on site, however skip the queues and bring some moula with you the event. Also public transport is recommended in and out of the festival with some road closures in and around Fortitude Valley.
