Things to do with kids in Brisbane
What's on in Brisbane this weekend: 20-22 July
Plenty to do in Brissie this weekend and it looks to be the first sunny one we've had in a while!
Make it a farmtastic one at Australia's largest retail expo: Go Expo Farm Fantastic, Caboolture. Advertised as 6-expos-in-1, Farm Fantastic offers a corral of experiences including gourmet, adventure, home retail, professonal services, farm machinery, and entertainment for all ages. Demonstrations, live performances, face-painting, clowns, great food, and a live radio broadcast should keep you busy enough (and that's just scratching the surface). Head to the website for more information, show times, and travel info. Ticket prices are only $10 for seniors, $14 for adults, and children under 14 are FREE.
Not for little kids, but if you have older (18+) kids, then there's plenty going on over the closing weekend of this year's festivities for Queensland Beer Week. Brewery tours, tastings, and home brew demonstrations are just some of the events happening around Brissie until Sunday. See the QBW calendar for more details.
What teams perfectly with beer? Food! The Delectable Food Festival continues this weekend with free shows, demonstrations, and foodie events across Brisbane. Kids will love meeting Masterchef contestants Amina and Filippo at South Bank Cultural Forecourt at 10am on Saturday (FREE). Ranger Stacey and the Totally Wild team visit the same venue at 10am on Sunday (FREE). Visit the website to browse the huge list of other events also available.
School leavers might want to get along to the Tertiary Studies Expo (TSExpo) at RNA Showgrounds. Thinking of going back to study? Then find information, study support, and course details at RNA Showgrounds, Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm. Admission is FREE.
And if you want to check out the kind of talent that our state schools are producing at the moment, show your support for up and coming performance artists at Creative Generation - State Schools Onstage. This year promises to be sensational. Shows are on Friday and Saturday; tickets available at Ticketek.
If it is live theatre or concerts you're looking for, get your culture on at Queensland Symphony Orchestra's Great Favourites and enjoy some of the best known classics from composers such as Mozart, Rossini, and Tchaikovsky. This one-off performance in on Sunday at 11am; tickets from only $30.
Meanwhile, Brisbane Arts Theatre continues its successful run of Narnia this weekend, and The Velveteen Rabbit: A New Musical is playing at Metro Arts Theatre.
Last but not least, A Winter's Day Festival promises an amazing day of activities for families, including street artists, balloon shows, face-painting, live performances, cooking demonstrations, and a few famous faces. Victoria Park is the venue from 12-6pm on Sunday and admission is FREE.
Have a sunny weekend!
