It's back. It has come of age. And, it's the inner-city street party to end all street parties. Sure, Brisbane as a whole likes to throw a suburb-specific bashes like they're going out of style; however no one does it like Fortitude Valley when their annual fiesta turns 21.
If you've lived in this fair, mostly sunny city at any point over the past two decades, then odds are that you've been to at least one Valley Fiesta — and that you know why it's worth celebrating as a result. Over October 27 and 28, Brunswick Street and the surrounding Valley nooks and crannies will come alive with the sound of music, the smell of food from the area's plethora of eateries, and the sight of browsing and buying at the iconic markets.
After some specifics? How about The Jungle Giants, Fatman Scoop, The Gooch Palms, Velociraptor and more taking care of the tunes, for starters? The event also boasts local talent singing their hearts out on Friday evening, multicultural showcases in the Chinatown mall on both Saturday and Sunday, and all the Valley shopping you could want. Yep, it's a fiesta alright.
