Stay warm this June by keeping busy with all Brisbane has to offer! There are festivals for everything from lanterns to dogs, plus so many markets that you’ll be working up a sweat before you know it.

Riverbar and Kitchen Winterfest

When: Saturday June 1 – Sunday June 30

No winter blues here – Riverbar and Kitchen is bringing the heat to Brisbane with their fourth annual Winterfest! To celebrate one of the world’s most beloved cocktails, Winterfest will be serving up daily live music, a bespoke negroni menu and delicious food to make sure you start winter feeling all glowing and snug inside. Enjoy a Frogroni (frozen Negroni), sour Negroni, hot mulled Negroni or another delicious concoction while feasting on their fabulous menu with an Italian-style twist. The festival is free and will run everyday during June but what better way to welcome in winter than with a Negroni in hand?

Winter Solstice Festival

When: Saturday June 22

Celebrate Winter like they did in the ancient times with Northey Street City Farm who have been celebrating the Winter Solstice for over 20 years at their annual festival of live music, dancing, workshops, delicious food, a lantern parade and a mesmerising bonfire that will keep you toasty all night long. To celebrate nature, you have to treat it well, so the festival will be zero waste with the food and drink stalls not handing out any single use items. Bring your own bottle, plate, bowl or cutlery, or hire crockery and cutlery for a gold coin fee, and then let the night whisk you away in all its winter glory!

Boho Luxe Market

When: Friday June 28 – Sunday June 30

If you can’t make it down to Byron Bay this June but are craving those vibes, don’t fret because Boho Luxe Market is bringing Brisbane a ‘Weekend of Wanderlust’ to satisfy your needs! Chase the sun to a weekend filled with glamping, kombis, music, art, fashion, jewellery and divine food trucks! Plus with flower crown workshops and free massages, you can keep the good vibes flowing even after you leave. Entry is a chill $5 so pull out your best crochet top and breezy flares, and wander over to the spectacular Old Museum for a weekend made from boho dreams!
