Event Background

This year's Paniyiri Festival promises to be bigger, longer, and better than ever before!

They'll even be starting early with an entire week of Greek celebrations across the city leading up to the Paniyiri weekend.

Musgrave Park in South Brisbane will transform into a Greek marketplace with more than 30 food stores and well over 20 hours of entertainment.

The festival will even see a return of the "Greek Dancing with the Stars" including some surprise special guests that you wont discover until the show.

Festival goers will have the opportunity to take part in a world record Zorba attempts, grape stomping, Olive and Honeypuff Eating Competitions, Hellenic Dancing and Zorba Till You Drop.

Traditional Greek food at PaniyiriThe South Brisbane Greek Club will become a hive of activity with tradition Greek cooking demonstrations featuring some of Queensland's culinary greats, as well as cultural films, and tours of the Greek Orthodox Church.

Event Details

Over four decades Paniyiri 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 2017 and this kaleidoscopic cultural explosion is now legendary. More than 60,000 are expected to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Hellenic Dancers with a range of celebratory events in the lead up, and over the weekend.
