About Paniyiri


In 2019 Brisbane’s famous Paniyiri Greek Festival will mark 43 years – a landmark cultural and celebratory milestone. 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 2019 and this kaleidoscopic cultural explosion is now legendary. More than 60,000 are expected to celebrate with a range of celebratory events in the lead up, and over the weekend of May 18 and 19.


SATURDAY 18 MAY | 12pm to 10pm

SUNDAY 19 MAY | 10am to 7pm

Musgrave Park & The Greek Club, Edmondstone Street, South Brisbane

Our Sponsors for this years Paniyiri








South Brisbane is easy enough to get to by car but on the weekend of Paniyiri you might struggle to find a parking spot. Your best bet is to plan ahead with TransLink's Journey Planner and map out your trip via public transport to and from Paniyiri - the festival is close to both the Cultural Centre and the South Brisbane train station. You shouldn’t get too lost, just follow the crowds. If you want to be in a prime position to make the most of all Paniyiri has to offer, book yourself into a South Brisbane Hotel or Holiday Apartment. You can enjoy a short walk down to the festivities, plenty of other local restaurants if you need a break from the crowds, and respite is close at hand once you’ve eaten, sang and danced yourself to exhaustion. .
