Street eats, cold beers, cheeky cocktails, street performers and outdoor d-floors. Sound familiar? That’s right, the much loved, much missed Teneriffe Festival is making its long awaited return on Saturday 23 October, with new organisers Goodwill Projects (who you may know from the likes of the Milton, Nundah and Brisbane City Markets) and iMMERSE Events promising a fiesta experience that’s better than ever.
The event, which captures the diversity and heritage that makes Teneriffe the cultural hub it is, will run from 10am to 9pm and offers something for everyone. There’ll be an international focus with South East Queensland’s best food trucks pulling up on Vernon Terrace to share various global flavours and take your taste buds on a trip around the world. You’ll also be able to indulge in your favourite local eats from the top-notch restaurants thanks to The Taste of Teneriffe, with the likes of Streetcorner Jimmy, Dalgety 2.0 Public House and Siffredi's dishing up signature eats ofr the day.
A Teneriffe event wouldn’t be complete without some stellar tipples to grab from one of the many pop-up bars that will be lining the laneways. The big news is that the Brisbane Gin Distillery is bringing their double decker gin bus along for the day, but you'll also be able to throw back fine wines from Bacchus Wine Merchants and craft brews from Green Beacon in one of their three pop-up beer gardens.
While you sip, you can take in the street performers and hit the one of two laneway stages for a boogie—yes, that’s right, two stages featuring a line up of fresh, homegrown musical acts perfectly curated by the legends from The Triffid.
Before you go full J Lo on the dance floor there’ll be heaps of market stalls to stroll through and community reps to have a chat to and get more involved in your local community. A dedicated kids zone will make sure the little ones get to have just as much fun as the big kids, so this one's for the whole family.
Make sure you mark this unmissable event in the calendar and join in on this street party for the books. Tickets are just $15 per person (with discounts for groups of four) and are available now, you can grab them here.
Meanwhile scope out what’s on in Brisbane in September.
