From getting your Greek on to hip hop yoga fusion, this weekend is all about making the most of what Brisbane has to offer.
Sit back, relax – no, wait… get up, get out, and have an awesome weekend!
Paniyiri is a legendary kaleidoscopic cultural explosion that sees more than 50,000 Greeks and honorary Greeks flocking to Musgrave Park every year. And this year marks the festival’s 40th anniversary!
Dine alfresco en masse, inhale the smell of the Greek BBQs, dance your way into the Guinness World Record books, smash plates, soothe your soul with the live sounds of the bouzouki and the lira, eat 25 honey puffs in one minute, see a film, experience traditional Greek cooking demonstrations, stomp grapes and see inside the stunning Greek Orthodox Church! There are endless possibilities here.
