Paniyiri Greek Festival returns to Brisbane with drive-through loukoumades


By John Voutos.

The Paniyiri Greek Festival will return to Brisbane’s Greek Club precinct from Saturday, May 22 to May 23, 2021.

It will mark the 45th anniversary of Australia’s biggest and longest-running Greek festival and feature a mix of virtual and COVID-safe in-person events. Last year’s event was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Attendees can expect a line-up of dancing and live music events, as well as cooking demonstrations. A new loukoumades pop-up drive-through and a wide array of authentic Greek food will also be on display.
