You've gotta love a street party. No, seriously — given the number of them that happen around Brisbane each year, it's impossible not to. Everyone has always had a soft spot for Bulimba Festival, though. It's a reason to head to the inner-east's best-known roadway and eat, drink, listen to music and just hangout, after all.
Sticking with 2016's one-day format, it's back for another day of tunes, rides, food and beverages, and more. Tunes-wise, that includes Jebediah ramping up the late '90s, early '00s nostalgia, plus Maddy Jane, Electrik Lemonade, Bugs and Machine Age. Elsewhere, expect rides and games at Memorial Park, plus food trucks and markets adding to the bricks-and-mortar stores already lining the street, with the bulk of the fun taking place around Barcadia and Oxford 152. That's what happens when two of the local pubs spearhead proceedings.
