Fire & Ice Food Festival
Snow, fire, markets, food and more.
July 05, 2019
Every Friday night between July 5 and August 23, one patch of Brisbane will boast flames, snow, warming food, toasty booze, ice-themed stage shows, fire performers, a snow globe photobooth, music, markets and more. That place: Rocklea's Brisbane Night Markets, as part of the weekly event's eight-week Fire & Ice Food Festival.
Running from 4–10pm each Friday, this fest gets into the swing of winter — because even though it's never all that frosty in this sunny city of ours, it's always fun to pretend. Here, snow machines will make you think you're somewhere colder, while fire pits will heat you up. Plus, when you're not eating creme brulee crepes and Gaytime ice creams that've been wrapped in marshmallows and then torched (and served with Nutella), you can drink pumpkin spiced lattes, craft brews and mulled wine.
The food lineup also includes low-and-slow cooked pork knuckles, Philly cheesesteaks with chilli marinade, wood-fired pizzas, flame-roasted meatball subs, and bacon s'mores with bacon strips, chocolate and toasted marshmallow, so arrive hungry.
Entry costs $2.50, and ugging up is recommended — you'll be getting wintry in a huge warehouse.
