Brisbane’s biggest street party, the Teneriffe Festival celebrates the rich heritage and kaleidoscopically diverse community that is Teneriffe, by erupting in a fabulous fiesta of the best eats, beats, art and drinks the area has to offer. Inviting diverse culture-rich locals and visitors into the community, the festival has a plethora of activities and experiences such as the Tastes of Teneriffe, historical installations, film, fashion and art – along with endless dining and drinking experiences to reflect this truly unique area of Brisbane.
The Teneriffe Festival is a one-day event in and around the suburb’s riverside streets, commencing at 10am – 9pm and offering a full program of music, food, children’s entertainment and historical displays.
The event program is kaleidoscopic in its diversity, from historical to contemporary; from folk music through to punk rock; health and fitness through to cheese, champagne and oysters...We strive to create a one-day event that really does have something for everyone – regardless of age or tastes. The Festival attracts approximately 50,000 people, all keen to wander the riverside streets and hidden laneways, discovering our carefully curated programme of entertainment and street acts, local restaurants and food vendors, market stalls and displays, a glorious Kids Zone and dozens of community groups.
