Paniyiri Greek Festival 2019
In 2019, Brisbane’s famous Paniyiri Greek Festival will mark 43 years – a landmark cultural and celebratory milestone.
Over four decades Paniyiri has grown to become Queensland’s signature celebration of all things Greek and the state’s largest cultural festival as well as the country’s longest running Greek festival – an admirable success story for the celebration that started in 1976 when a group of passionate Greek Australians wanted to share their cultural traditions with Brisbane.
Fast forward to 2019 and this kaleidoscopic cultural explosion is now legendary. More than 60,000 are expected to celebrate with a range of celebratory events in the lead-up and over the weekend of May 18 and 19.
