About Paniyiri

AUSTRALIA’S BIGGEST GREEK FESTIVAL

In 2017 Brisbane’s famous Paniyiri Greek Festival will mark 41 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 2017 and this kaleidoscopic cultural explosion is now legendary. More than 60,000 are expected to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Hellenic Dancers with a range of celebratory events in the lead up, and over the weekend of May 20 and 21.

 

SATURDAY 20 MAY | 12pm to 10pm

Location

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 catch either a bus or train to South Brisbane and walk up to Musgrave Park. 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. .
