Providore Park Food Festival | Brisbane CBD

13 July @ 10:00 am - 14 July @ 5:00 pm

Providore Park

Providore Park is set to return for another year of picnics and culinary delights, making the most of Brisbane’s enviable winter weather. This food festival offers attendees a feast of reasons to wine and dine in Roma Street Parkland across two days in July. The 2024 event promises a lineup of talents and businesses that will surely make food enthusiasts eager to attend.

Free to attend in general, with paid experiences available and numerous food and drink options for purchase, this two-day affair will take place from 10am–5pm daily on Saturday, July 13th, and Sunday, July 14th.

Brisbanites can visit Providore Park’s 16-hectare inner-city home for on-site and takeaway bites, craft brews, food-and-drink masterclasses, live music, and plenty of space to relax on the grass. The Village will feature a variety of stalls from renowned vendors like Lune Croissanterie, New Farm Confectionery, and many more, with the creators themselves on hand to discuss their products.

Providore Park will also host Bisou Bisou, Blackbird Bar, and other culinary options, along with a Stone & Wood Garden Bar for brews, and beverage options from City Winery, Seabourne Distillery, and Sobah. Chef masterclasses from culinary experts such as Katrina Ryan, Arte Assavakavinvong, Peter Kuruvita, and Ben Williamson will enhance attendees’ food knowledge. While the event has moved away from its croquet club theme, it will still feature food- and wine-matching sessions, a VIP lounge, and live music on the Celebration Lawn.
