September each year sees the arrival of not only a welcome spring but of the Brisbane Festival.
This annual international arts festival will be held at various Brisbane locations between 3 – 24 September 2016. Emerging from the popular Warana Festival, first held in 1961, the festival continues to grow in its appeal to locals and visitors from across the world.
There is something for everyone, from Cabaret to Opera, Circus to Film and everything in between. Families are well catered for, and many activities are free.
The three -week long festival will culminate in the spectacular Sunsuper Riverfire fireworks display, all set to music chosen by Brisbanites. A highlight of the display will be an aerobatics display performed by the Australian Defence Force and RAAF Super Hornet and Army helicopter displays. (Availability of ADF equipment and aircraft including Super Hornets and helicopters is subject to operational requirements.)
If you are visiting Brisbane during September, make sure you put aside some time to enjoy the festivities.
