What's On

From the Brisbane International tennis tournament to the Brisbane Festival and beyond, the city has a packed showcase of events. There is something for everyone – live sport, art and culture, music and festivals aplenty. These events are not confined to the city heart, as the precincts and regions play their part in staging entertainment throughout the year. 

Among the city’s blue-ribbon events are Sandgate and Shorncliffe’s Blue Water Festival, during which 100 yachts are launched in the Brisbane to Gladstone race. Other highlights are Chinese New Year, Brisbane Racing Carnival, Paniyiri Greek Festival, the showpiece Ekka, Brisbane International Film Festival, and the Brisbane Festival – a three-week arts and cultural extravaganza culminating in the spectacular Riverfire.
