Event: -
Brisbane's first festival celebrating all things Christmassy
It really can't be said that Brisbane is short on Christmas festivities. There is a huge range of activities, markets, carols and events for all the family across the city, South Bank and suburbs from now right up until Christmas. But up until now there hasn't been a festival dedicated purely to all things Christmassy. Well, I'll let you in on a little secret: that particular Christmas hole will be filled this year when The World Food Markets bring you The Christmas Festival at Brisbane Powerhouse.

Every weekend from 30 November to 16 December you can enjoy Christmas music, food and market stalls, with a distinct focus on local producers, handmade and fair trade goods, turning Brisbane's favourite industrial building and community space into a cheery, charming Christmas market village.

The event will run from 5pm to 9pm on each of the following days:

🎄 Friday 30 November
🎄 Saturday 1 December
🎄 Sunday 2 December
🎄 Friday 7 December
🎄 Saturday 8 December
🎄 Sunday 9 December
🎄 Friday 14 December
🎄 Saturday 15 December
🎄 Sunday 16 December


Come along and shop for all your Christmas needs. The market and food stalls will be serving up delicious and delightful goods. Think Christmas puddings, decorations for your tree and home (including ornaments that can be personalised while you wait), and Christmas trees. You'll also find providore and artisan handmade goods & gifts for adults, kids and pets. Themed areas will be set up including Artists and Makers, Nursery, Fair Trade Christmas from Around the World, Queensland Producers (featuring gourmet produce like cheese and wine), and more.

The Christmas Festival at Brisbane Powerhouse is free to attend, no tickets required AND it's child-friendly and pet friendly.


Adults are not left out of the equation because there will also be craft beer and cocktails with a bar on the Performance Lawns. You can also expect demonstrations (how to make a Christmas wreath, handmade decorations, etc) and community Christmas carolling.

The organisers want you to know that their "focus this Christmas is Connection - to Family and Friends, to the environment and community we live in - sharing, well being, finding beautifully sourced produce, supporting small local businesses going against the grain of rampant mass consumerism". Hear, hear.
