Famous riverside street party and community festival
Described by many Brisbaneites as our city's best street party and community festival, Teneriffe Festival is back for another year in 2018 with more doses of food, history, entertainment, activities for kids, and market stalls. It all happens on Saturday 7 July amongst the riverside streets and laneways of historic Teneriffe.

For eleven whole hours, if you have the stamina for it, you can discover Teneriffe along with 50,000 happy festival goers. There'll be lots to take in and enjoy, spaces for relaxation, and a huge shot of history - in short, something for everyone. All the fun begins at 10am and runs through the day and evening, with closing time scheduled for 9pm.

There will be so many festival highlights that it's hard to pick out just a few but below are some of my tips for enjoying a great festival day by the river:

Visit the 13Cabs River Stage where you'll be entertained by a huge variety of musical and dance performances;

Check out the special Kids Zone for the littlies with child-friendly attractions and activities;

Tastes of Teneriffe, will highlights the wining, dining, coffee and brew for which this area is justly famous. Think Green Beacon Brewing (local craft brewers and the festival's major sponsor;

Teneriffe Historical Bus Tours will be departing every hour from 10am to 3pm, showcasing the area's significant heritage. Tickets will be $10 from the bus marquee near Gate 2.

The Good Living Stage will feature talks, displays and demonstrations by local businesses, including local success story, Dello Mano Luxury Brownies;

And we can't forget about the cutest treat of all: Piglet Races. Since 2000 Noahs' Farm Piglet Races have raised more than $3.5 Million for a range of charities around Australia. Rest assured these piggies love to race and when their racing days are through they retire to the country in the lap of piggy luxury.
