Each July, the Teneriffe Festival celebrates the history of this much-loved inner city suburb, its present and its aspirations for the future. As a centrepiece of urban renewal, Teneriffe has so much to celebrate with its historic woolstores and new developments, a raft of cool cafes and eateries and a beautiful riverside location. As well as all that, Teneriffe is conveniently located 3 kms from the CBD.
The Festival will feature over 70 bespoke market stalls lining the streets from the corner of Vernon Terrace and Commercial Road, through to Florence Street. With clothing and homewares, home-made foods and great take-away food there will be something for everyone.
The River Stage will host seven musical acts from 12.45pm onwards. Hannah Rosa will start the day with the evening culminating in a performance from The Steel Syndicate at 8pm. Doolie, Will Anderson, Christian Patey, Tia Gostelow and Shag Rock will round out the schedule.
Supporting Charities This year, the Festival will support several important charities namely Kiss Goodbye to MS, I Can I will, Lions Club of Teneriffe.
And of course, Teneriffe is home to some of Brisbane's best cafes and restaurants and these businesses will be on show during the Festival.
