Event Description

This Sunday - 13 September - is River Sunday! Activities all day - see Brisbane Festival website below for details.

The Brisbane Festival event is a full day for the kids, and allows them to show the grown-ups a thing or two and get involved in loads of different, free activities. Children’s music, art, ideas and ongoing school projects will all be on display.

The showcase feature of the day is a cooking and gardening demonstration by our very own Stephanie Alexander, keenly supported by five of our Queensland schools.

The schools have been hard at work - trialling some delicious treats, designing a temporary vegetable garden and growing all of the produce themselves. Children will join in on the day, with two cooking demonstrations held on the Goodwill Bridge and at Riverside Green, Southbank.

Full details are available via the Brisbane Festival website.

Come along and join in the fun! See how a kitchen garden operates, meet Stephanie, have a copy of Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids signed, and get inspired to apply for a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden National Program grant.
