The famous yearly odyssey known as Paniyiri will be on again, when Brisbane experiences Hellenic hospitality at its best. The festival will take place at Musgrave Park and The Greek Club in South Brisbane.

While the historic steps of the Acropolis may be some 15,000 kilometres from the grassy flats of Brisbane’s Musgrave Park, all the sights, sounds, characters and culture from the country which produced Homer, haloumi, honey puffs, Socrates, Plato and the famous Zorba will be celebrated in style during the much anticipated festival. Come along and enjoy the dance, music, food, tavli, lectures, effie, trella and cooking at the Paniyiri Greek Festival.
