Final preparations are taking for Paniyiri 2022 Greek festival, to go ahead on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October.
Queensland’s longest-running cultural festival and Australia’s biggest Greek celebration attracts around 50,000 people each year.
The festival was postponed in May due to wet weather, and concerns over the impact the festival could have had on the infrastructure and grounds at Musgrave Park.
More than 50,000 people attend the yearly event, which offers cultural presentations, cooking demonstrations, entertainment, ‘stomp the grapes’ experience, multiple food stalls, fashion parades, art exhibitions and a pop-up Greek village.
The festival was started in 1976 by a group of Greek Australians – and has grown from a simple picnic to a two day and night festival.
The Paniyiri committee initially launched the festival with musicians and dancers, which led to the creation of Brisbane’s first Hellenic dance club.
Their passionate performances are one of the many highlights of this hugely popular, and deeply authentic festival.
