July is packed full of fun and exciting activities, and there is plenty more to see and do this weekend. There’s even a Medieval Festival coming up that I’m super excited about!! So if you want to know more, then keep on reading! 🙂
We just LOVE our food here in Brisbane, and the entire month of July is all about food with the return of the Good Food Month event. For the next 3 weeks, restaurants, cafes and bars around the city will be showcasing the very best they have to offer to you guys – the public! There’s something for everyone; breakfast lunch and dinner. Take a look at the official website for more information and timetables.
If you haven’t heard about the Brisbane Winter Festival by now, where have you been?! The giant snow toboggan in King George Square is a big give away! 🙂 This weekend is your final chance to enjoy this beautiful Brisbane Winter event before it’s gone forever!! (I just wish we had REAL snow here…) :(So be sure to at least try ice-skating over in front of the clock tower this weekend! There will be plenty of other icy events on as well.
This week also marks the coming of NAIDOC Week, which celebrates our native Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Head on over to Musgrave Park in South Brisbane this Friday for a fun-filled day with rides, stalls, traditional foods, story telling and much more! Let’s celebrate our beautiful Indigenous Australian history and people together. ❤ Entry is only a gold coin donation. If you want to learn more about NAIDOC Week, click here.
Keeping in the theme of celebrating culture, this Friday the Brisbane French Festival (or Le Festival) is back and bigger than before! Running all weekend, South Bank will be painted red, white and blue with all things French! Come on down to celebrate this colourful, arty culture, enjoy a croissant or two and sip on fine French wine! Major landmarks around town like the Treasury Casino will also be coloured in the traditional French colours to show its support! Take a look at the website here for more info!
Sharpen your swords, and saddle your horses – the Abbey Tournament is back!! The gates to Abbeystowe will be opened at 8:45am this Saturday, soon followed by the official Grand Parade Opening Ceremony. Get in on all the fun by dressing up as a knight, a gypsy or even a dragon, as cosplaying is highly encouraged! There will be plenty of Medieval themed stalls, games, and food available on both days, so be sure to bring plenty of gold coins! Tickets to the annual Jousting competition will also be on sale both Saturday and Sunday, so don’t miss out! For more information about this event, and how to get there, visit the official website. To save time at the front gate, purchase your tickets online. See you there!! 🙂
That’s all for now, folks! As always, have a fun yet safe weekend! Remember to keep warm, and plan your journey ahead of time to avoid any unnecessary problems! See you next week!! 😀
