Now in its fifth fabulous year, the Teneriffe Festival combines all of Brisbane’s favourite things – live music, fashion, markets and superb food. The Festival will pack an extra punch this year as it continues to grow. The Tastes of Teneriffe precinct has expanded and visitors can expect to see Darren Middleton of Powderfinger as one of the many talented acts featured across the four (yes, four!) stages on the day.
The Tastes of Teneriffe precinct will be spiced up once again with offerings from restaurants including The London Club, London Porterhouse, Claret House, Green Beacon, Malt Dining and more. At the Pork, Fork pop up, visitors will be able to treat themselves to the delights of Chester Street Bakery and Bar, Alfredo’s Pizzeria, and the festival’s newest addition of Kwan Brothers.
Once you have had your fill of wood-fired pizzas, pork rolls, lamb ribs and tasty sweet treats, it will be time to pick up a lei and cocktail at Alfred and Constance’s White Lightning pop up! Did we mention that there are free buses to the two festival after parties being held at Limes Rooftop Bar and Alfred and Constance? Churrr bro!
There are also plenty of fashion-fuelled activities for the fashion lovers to see. Parades and styling shows start at 11:00am in Emerge Fashion Precinct in the London Laneway and run throughout the day until 8:30pm. Encompassing accessories, shoes and bags, emerging designers, swim and resort wear, Merino wool, sustainable styling and avant-garde hairstyling and make-up, you will be truly mesmerized by the displays and workshops.
If fashion doesn’t quite take your fancy there are plenty of exciting activities on offer. The festival will have over 100 unique market stalls to peruse with everything from clothing and homewares through to home-made eats and treats lining the streets and laneways.
With a burgeoning multicultural precinct featuring art, live performances, food and workshops, there will be heaps for the kids to do too! Festival organisers have created a special Kids World to amuse both children and adults alike. Expect to see sheep shearing demonstrations, farm animals, circus shows, a jumping castle, face painting and oh… did we mention there will be a Mr Whippy Van?
The festival kicks off at 9am this Saturday 5 July and is definitely not a day to miss.
