Brisbane has become a hub of some of the most wonderful festivals, both big and small, celebrating culture, music, arts and more. Here is a list of Brisbane's annual festivals that I have come across with links to articles covered by the weekendnotes team.

This list is by no means exhaustive so let us know what your favourite festival is!

Panyiri Greek Festival (May)

This yearly festival oozes heaps of fun! With lots of zorba dancing, plate smashing, honey puff eating and Greek cooking to go around, this is an event that everyone will love! Held at Musgrave Park in West End.

Ekka: The Royal Queensland Show (August)

The Ekka is Queensland's largest annual agricultural event showcasing culture, produce and initiatives through a range of competitions, exhibits, animals and performances. This plus a whole range of entertainment including fun rides, firework displays and showbags make the Ekka an all time family favourite.
