On Saturday 16th of July, GPO and Smirnoff are proudly presenting the return of Brisbane's favourite Latin American street festival!
Presented by Revelry Entertainment, this family-friendly fiesta celebrates Colombian Independence day with authentic Colombian food and drinks, LIVE music, DJ sets, dancing and much more right in the heart of Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
From 11am, GPO, Ann and Ballow Streets will feature a festive selection of traditional Colombian food from a range of different eateries, including Colombian BBQ, Phatboys Food Truck, Little Lady Peruvian Cuisine, EL PARCHE and last but not least, Arepa House.
There will also be plenty of exotic Colombian beverages to enjoy, ranging from Aguardiente, refreshing Aguila beer and traditional Colombian cocktails.
And throughout the afternoon and evening, event-goers can enjoy live music performances and DJs across three stages. Catch performances from local Colombian bands including Los Parranderos "Vallento", a LIVE Mariachi Performance "Rancheras" and Chukale Y Sus Estrellas Colombians "Salsa & Bachata". As the sun goes down, Colombian music makers, DJ Ikanos, DJ Gomez and DJ Andres H will keep the crowds dancing late into the evening, followed by an official after party at GPO from 10pm (ages 18 and over only).
This year's event also includes a kids zone packed with toys and games from Little Legs Toy & Party Hire, balloons, colouring-in books, and a face painter. Please note that kids under 18 years need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
