Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival

The Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival is on again in 2019 to celebrate pre-loved fashion and encourage residents to reduce their textile waste to landfill.

Returning for its fourth year on Saturday 17 August 2019 in the lead-up to National Op Shop Week, the festival promises to be bigger and better than ever with even more second-hand retailers and runway shows.

This one-day community event at the Cultural Forecourt of South Bank Parklands will feature local charities, retailers, students, crafters, clothes vendors and on-site stylists to offer a fun fashion-focused program of activities, such as markets, runway shows, styling, live entertainment as well as delicious bites from some of Brisbane’s best food trucks.
