Where is it: All over Brisbane but concentrated in South Bank and the City!
What's it all about: A three-week, annual event showcasing art, music, theatre and more – including the most spectacular fireworks display and the biggest party in the city!
Tell me more: In the space of nearly 10 years Brisbane Festival has grown to be one of the countries premiere arts festivals, with over a million people joining in! There’s definitely a different feel in the city when Brisbane Festival comes around – not just because of seeing the back of [our very mild] winter and the springtime vibes, but it seems that there is an air of excitement and anticipation at this time!
There are too many events to list, but you can take your pick from theatre, differing genres of music, comedy, horror, circus, and all kinds of interactive artwork and installations! And there are shows for all ages and budgets too. There are even a few restaurants who get in on the action. It really is a case of choosing an event being the most difficult aspect of the festival!
The whole festival is tremendously topped off by what has become probably Brisbane’s favourite event – Riverfire, which is a fantastic fireworks display which it would seem, the whole city comes out to enjoy!
