The Teneriffe Festival is the place to be this July
The Teneriffe Festival is now in its 10th Year!
It will be held on Saturday 6th July 2019 and celebrate where Teneriffe has come from, where it is now, and its objectives for the future. They want to be an example of the outcomes possible for urban renewal.
The event will be held from 10.00 am till 9.00 pm at Ethel Street and Vernon Terrace, Teneriffe.
The Teneriffe Festival is a one-day event in and around the suburb's riverside streets, offering visitors a full program of music, food, children's entertainment, and historical displays. The event was originally started to mark Teneriffe becoming a suburb again in its own right. This was after 150 years and it showcased the rich heritage in Brisbane's history and celebrated its current lifestyle appeal.
Every July, the Teneriffe Festival enlivens and transforms the suburb with a huge celebration of the community and everything from the past, right through to the future that makes it unique. Teneriffe's colourful present started out of a vivacious history of both people and industry. From the landed gentry, who lived in richly decorated and furnished homes with tennis courts and magnificent gardens, to the newly arrived immigrants. These immigrants often worked as house servants, or on the wharves, and later in the Woolstores, living in the workers' cottages that are still an architectural characteristic of the area!
The Teneriffe Festival is a volunteer board of professionals living and operating businesses in the community. The Teneriffe Festival is owned, managed and produced by Teneriffe Festival Inc. in conjunction with major stakeholders such as the Brisbane City Council. They intend to ensure people know the area's reputation as a destination for incredible dining and entertaining experiences.
There will be heaps of activities and experiences such as:
The Tastes of Teneriffe
Unique dining and drinking experiences
The event will feature from folk music through to punk rock, health and fitness, through to cheese and champagne and oysters. They ensure that this one-day event really does have something for everyone – regardless of age.
The festival generally has about 50,000 visitors, all keen to wander the riverside streets and hidden laneways. Here you will discover carefully curated programs of entertainment and street acts, local restaurants and food trucks, market stalls and displays, a glorious children's zone, and many community groups.
Over the last ten years, the Teneriffe festival has presented both local and international artists and personalities who are well known, and whose presence adds to the festival's atmosphere and prestige. Similarly, they have got together with some of the most reputable corporate brands in Australia and developed relationships with these entities that are mutually beneficial.
There will be plenty of food on offer and if you are suffering from a sweet tooth, here is the perfect way to ease your suffering.
