Night Feast Is Returning To The Brisbane Powerhouse For Spring

Brisbane Powerhouse is already a giant in Brisbane’s entertainment scene, but this year it got even cooler with the culture and events precincts's newest addition, Night Feast. As well as being the place to catch a show, now we can head to the New Farm venue for street eats under the stars two months out of every year.

After launching with a bang in March with the first autumn Night Feast, the immersive art and feasting experience is once again taking over the Brisbane Powerhouse and surrounding park from 4-29 October, operating every Wednesday to Sunday night. Fusing food and art, Night Feast is unlike anything else in Brisbane—so make sure you add it to your calendar, stat. the entrance to Night Feast at the Brisbane Powerhouse

Following it's inaugural success, the spring edition will once again serve up a host of stalls helmed by some of Brisbane's best chefs. A few autumn crowd favourites will be making a return, including e'cco bistro, Donna Chang, Gerard's Bistro, Dalton Catering, Hoy Pinoy and Wonderbao, however there will be some newbies to sample too. ESSA, NOTA, Southside, Bar Alto, The Green and MAYA will be dishing up all new eats to try, and Nosferatu will also be in attendance with a gin and dessert bar—yes please. 

On the art side of things, there will once again be immersive installations, roaming performances, DJ sets and live music from visual and performance artists. The entire precinct will be inhabited by a series of ten illuminated, multi-limbed giants called Multitudes, by artists Tin and Ed, while Bridie Hooper will be presenting her latest performance artwork, For Whom The Bell Tolls, and you'll also find visual and performance artists The Huxleys wandering through the crowds.

Over 125,000 people attended the inaugral Night Feast Brisbane, and if you were there, you'll know that there is limited parking, so once again, Brisbane City Council will provide free public buses to and from City Hall to New Farm Park via Central Station. We also recommend visiting early on a weeknight if you can, when the crowds and queues will be at least a little smaller.

Brisbane Powerhouse CEO/Artistic Director Kate Gould says Night Feast's spring edition
will see Brisbane Powerhouse and surrounds transform into a fantastical playground for the
senses. “Night Feast is more than just a food festival; it's a celebration of creativity in all its forms, and
this spring, we've curated a lineup that promises to captivate and inspire. A true visual and
culinary spectacular and a feast for the senses.”
