West End Solstice Market
Celebrate the longest night of the year with 120-plus stalls, pop-up bars, bonfires, live music and fire twirlers.
May 10, 2023
The mercury is dropping, days are getting shorter and actually wearing long sleeves in Brisbane has become a reality. Also on the way: not just winter, but the longest night of the year, with West End getting a brand-new Solstice Market to celebrate.
The inner-city suburb is no stranger to markets in general, of course, but this one will give the West End Markets a one-night-only spin on Friday, June 16. On the menu is all the food, drinks and stalls you'd expect — 120-plus stalls, in fact — plus two stages of live music as well, and also fire twirlers.
Bonfires will also light up the night at Davies Park, and there'll be winter-themed workshops to embrace the season.
When you're not shopping for artisanal wares and grabbing a bite to eat, you can hit up the Stone & Wood pop-up bars and scope out Indigenous art.
Entry is free, as is parking, and the event runs from 4–10pm.
