Get ready to Party Like a Greek this weekend at the Paniyiri Festival!


In the Heart of Brisbane

The Paniyiri Greek Festival, a vibrant celebration of Greek culture and community spirit, is set to take place this weekend 18th & 19th of May. The festival is located in Brisbane’s West End and will offer a weekend packed with traditional music, dance, food and entertainment. This long-standing event has become a staple in Brisbane’s cultural calendar, drawing thousands of attendees each year to experience the rich heritage of Greece right here in Brisbane.


As Brisbane prepares for the 48th Paniyiri Greek Festival, the event continues to represent the essence of Greek culture and its ability to unite diverse communities. Celebrated as Australia’s longest-running Greek festival and Queensland’s principal cultural event, the Paniyiri Festival attracts up to 50,000 visitors, making it a pivotal celebration of Greek heritage.

The festival atmosphere is electric, filled with the smells of authentic Greek food, the sounds of traditional music and the visuals of Hellenic dances. These cultural exhibitions showcase the rich history and community spirit of the Greek people.

The Paniyiri Festival plays a crucial role in promoting cultural understanding and inclusivity. Originally started in 1976 by Greek Australian’s to share their rich heritage, it has grown into an inclusive event that welcomes all, reflecting Brisbane’s multicultural landscape.
