Guy Fieri once said, “I wake up in the morning thinking about food”, and to be perfectly honest, that resonates with us on such a deep level. Whether it’s served on a paper plate in a marketplace or in a three-hatted restaurant, we have an insatiable appetite for good food.

This is why massive foodie events – such as trails, degustations and progressive dinners ­– are some of our favourite things. If you have a healthy appetite for good food and strong drinks, then you need to join us Saturday, 28 July and Sunday, 29 July for the 7th year of the James St Food & Wine Trail, an epic weekend celebrating the diverse dining community of the James St precinct.

James St Food and Wine Trail


Kicking off on Saturday, referred to by locals as ‘trail day’, attendees can snake their way through the precinct sampling a delicious range of bites and drinks from some of the local vendors. From breakfast at Gerard’s Bistro to the Vacation Series at Bucci to a cocktail pop-up at Harvey’s Bistro, Saturday is your chance to sample exclusive menu offerings, local collaborations and unique dining experiences.

Sunday is ‘market day’ and your chance to indulge in an outdoor culinary marketplace with street-style fare, pop-up bars and plenty of family-friendly fun. With over 20 local businesses getting involved, you can try everything from coffee and pasta to yiros and oysters. Just maybe not all at once… The line-up of activities includes cooking demos, live music and craft classes, as well as a garden party.

From McLachlan St down to Robertson St, the James St precinct will be the exclusive host to one of the biggest foodie events in Brisbane this year. They will even be taking over the Pottery Barn and St Barts carparks as well!

Will we see you there?
