Event Description

Up for a weekend of smashing plates & eating honey puffs?

Moussaka, baklava, bouzoukis, souvlaki, haloumi, plate smashing - it's all Greek to me. And it can be all Greek to you too at Australia's largest cultural festival. The legendary Paniyiri Greek Festival is once again taking over South Brisbane's Musgrave Park for its annual weekend explosion of Greek food and culture.

ou may not realise this but we are indebted to the Greeks for many important things. From the Greeks we received trial by jury, anchors, democracy, geographical maps and satire. And where would we be without any of them, especially the maps. But we also love them for their food, music, dancing and that famous Greek friendliness, not to mention a touch of plate smashing. And all of these will be on show at this year's festival.

Paniyiri has become a Brisbane tradition over its thirty six year history and it continues to grow in popularity with more than 50,000 people attending last year's festival. All money raised helps with the community initiatives of the Greek Orthodox Community of St George.
