Paniyiri Greek Festival



$12 Adults (13 and over), $5 all pensioners, children free available through QTIX

Over four decades Paniyiri Greek Festival has grown to become Queensland’s signature celebration of all things Greek and the state’s largest cultural festival as well as the country’s longest running Greek festival – an admirable success story for the celebration that started in 1976 when a group of passionate Greek Australians wanted to share their cultural traditions with Brisbane. Fast forward to 2018 and this kaleidoscopic cultural explosion is now legendary. More than 60,000 are expected to celebrate with a range of celebratory events in the lead up, and over the weekend of May 19 and 20.

More than 30 authentic Greek food stalls will showcase the tastes, recipes and secrets from all regions of Greece. The Plateia will return for a second year celebrating the sights, smells and tastes of a traditional Greek Village, while paying tribute to the distinctive Cycladic architecture – if you missed it last year, think iconic blue window shutters and doors, narrow paved streets, vine-covered pergolas, whitewashed walls and market stalls full of colour, flavours and characters.

Paniyiri Greek Festival tickets are on sale now – to snap one up and check out the huge program on offer, head to the official website. If you’re looking for a ride, you can travel free with a pre-purchased Paniyiri ticket to the event on all regular network-wide Brisbane City Council buses and Queensland Rail City Network trains.
