During winter, Rocklea's Brisbane Night Markets celebrated all things fire and ice. Now that spring is in the air, the westside spot is turning its attention to one of Queensland's favourite foods. We're a state that loves mangoes so much, we've nicknamed one of our beers after them — so a festival dedicated to the tropical stone fruit is obvious, really.

Every Friday night between September 20 and October 11, the Brisbane Night Market Mango Festival will celebrate mangoes in every form imaginable. Sure, you can tuck into the fruit like you've always done — or you can snack on mango-glazed popcorn, eat a mango pie, lick your way through mango gelato, and tuck into a Cajun chicken and mango salsa pizza. To drink, you can sip mango daiquiris, mango margaritas and mango beer. Prepare to hear the word 'mango' a lot here.

There'll be other mango-themed fun, spanning mango-centric games and entertainment — plus a mango-eating competition, naturally. Listen to live music, browse the market stalls and, if you have a few mango-coloured items in your wardrobe, wearing them won't hurt.

Entry costs $2.50, the regular Brisbane Night Markets fee, with the festival running from 4–10pm across four Friday evenings.
