From iced lattes and makeup palettes, to hair dye and inflatable pool toys—unicorn fever has literally swept the world. Not convinced? There are over seven million pics on Insta with #unicorn—yes, we’ve hit fever pitch people. And it appears, the Coast has caught the glittery, rainbow bug too with news we’re getting our very own Unicorn Festival. Squeal! I mean who wouldn’t love a mystical creature who poops rainbows and sneezes glitter? 

The festival is taking place Saturday 6, October and is running ALL WEEKEND LONG! So what happens at a Unicorn Festival you ask? You ride a unicorn pony, obvs. Complete with a pastel mane and bedazzling magical unicorn horn, the little ones in your life will go nuts for this adorbs mystical creature. 

But it’s not just about the kids, because whether you want to admit it or not, we know you’re partial to a lil’ unicorn magic too. So, you’ll just LOVE the unicorn foodie offerings. We’re talking cupcakes with buttercream rainbow swirls, fairy floss and gooey brownies. We’re not drooling, you are! 

There’s also unicorn psychic readings that will connect you with your unicorn guide, and unicorn tarot card readings which will reveal the stars and rainbows in your life. There’s also an arts and craft zone, beauty bar and market stalls. Can you tell we’re just a wee bit excited? 

Yep, we’ll see you there, rainbows and all!
