It’s the longest-running Greek festival in Australia and Queensland’s largest cultural festival and it’s about to make it’s long-awaited return.
2020’s iteration of the Paniyiri Greek Festival was given the boot in the midst of mass lockdowns thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, the festival is ramping up plans for a big comeback, although things might look a little different this year.
The 2021 festival will not be celebrated in Musgrave Park with tens of thousands of attendees, instead moving to a combined online and in-person collection of experiences.
The festival will take place over the weekend of May 22-23, with a program chock full of events over the two days.
Cooking demonstrations, cultural exhibitions, lectures, dance performances and food events will all take place as ticketed, in-person events at The Greek Club.
However, if you can’t make it out, every single key event across the weekend will be livestreamed by the team behind the festival.
And (probably most importantly), yes…there will be honeypuffs! A honeypuff drive-through will be set up within the Greek Club precinct which means you don’t even need to leave the car to get some of those sweet, honey-glazed delights!
