Paniyiri Greek Festival 2009

UPDATE 20 May 09: Paniyiri has been rescheduled to 4 & 5 July 2009 due to poor weather.

I had totally forgotten about Paniyiri until late last week when I picked up a street press and saw it mentioned. For those not in the know, Paniyiri is a HUGE Greek Festival held every year in Musgrave Park in South Brisbane.

It’s 2 days of food, entertainment, fun, dancing and all things Greek and is definitely one of my favourite Brisbane Festivals – especially for food!

So get along on either Saturday May 23 July 4 or Sunday May 24 July 5 and enjoy some ouzo, honey puffs, olives, souvlaki, dolmades, octopus and calamari as there will be 30+ different food stalls covering all varieties.

If the great food isn’t enough to convince you there will also be fireworks, Zorba dancing, a sideshow alley, cooking demonstrations and last but not least… EFFIE! *cringe* who will be hosting “So You Think You Can Dance Greek” on Saturday night.

The best part is that it costs a pittance, just $7. See you there!
