Brisbane loves Paniyiri!

Last weekend marked 41 years of Brisbane’s famous Paniyiri Greek Festival. Over the past four decades the festival has grown to become Queensland’s signature celebration of all things Greek and the state’s largest cultural festival. 

The weekend highlights included a Greek Village Experience, a Hellenic Dancers Showcase Program, the acclaimed cooking program starring the flavours and faces of Greece and a line-up of authors, chefs, speakers and home cooks; as well as the dancers, singers and stars.

 

The celebration 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.
