THE Cage youth foundation will host its Epic Day Out this Saturday, August 4, at Capablaba Skate Park from 11am to 3.30pm.
The Cage director Linda Grieve said the day would be jam-packed full of activities including skate demos, performances by hip hop and break dance group Industrie 1, musicians and more.
"We have local bands and some of the young guys from The Cage will be going there as DJs, which gives them an opportunity to showcase what they've been doing," she said.
"One of the things not to miss will be the skate, scooter and BMX demos.
"We'll also have our barbecue trailer out and heaps of entertainment going on stage.
It's going to be epic."
Linda said she had hoped this would be their biggest event to date to help finance The Cage Youth Space at 9 Dollery Road, Capalaba.
She said Redland City Council originally owned The Cage Youth Space but it has since been bought by a private owner.
"The new owner has been really good by giving us a cheaper rate, but it does cost us $1500 per week," she said.
"When you're looking at a free community service that doesn't charge for what it does, it's quite a bit of money."
She said one of her roles at The Cage was to secure funding and plan events, and was looking at hosting more events including a Lazy Sunday Market every few months.
"The Cage Youth Space is somewhere for kids to hang out and it has been fitted out really well, including with its own music studio," she said.
The Cage's Epic Day Out is free to attend this Saturday, August 4, and food and drinks will be available for purchase.
The Capalaba Skate Park is located in Old Cleveland Road, Capalaba West.
