Paniyiri Greek Festival is Queensland’s signature celebration of all things Greek and the state’s largest cultural festival. The event will be held from Saturday May 24 and Sunday May 25 at Musgrave Park and The Greek Club in South Brisbane. Now in its 38th successful and exciting year, Paniyiri is a community initiative of the 25,000-strong Greek community of South East Queensland.
In Musgrave Park more than 30 food stalls will showcase the tastes, recipes and secrets of food from all corners of Greece while on the main stage, famous Greek dances the Zorba, Sirto, Kalamatiano and Sousta, will be performed to music played on traditional Greek instruments including the bouzouki, tarabuka, lira and laouto. A tradition enjoyed by Greeks and non-Greeks alike in a wonderful cross cultural celebration. All the famous Paniyiri festivities will be back including the return of Greek Dancing with the Stars with stars from Channel 7, grape stomping, olive and honey puff eating competitions and Hellenic dancing, as well as some new additions to the program including Greek Cooking Master Classes and a comedy night. The full program will be announced in mid-April.
