Got nothing planned for the week? Sick of staying in every weekend?
We’ve got you covered. These 5 events will definitely motivate you to get out of those trackies and outside into the real world!
Royal Queensland Show
That time of year has come around again, it’s time for the Royal Show! The annual agriculture show has returned for 9 days starting this Friday the 10th of August.
You all know how the show runs, animals, food, drinks, entertainment, music, carnival rides and more. Some of our favs that you should check out this year are the Heritage Bank racing pigs show which runs every day between 11am and 4pm, Cradle-A-Chick which is essentially watching baby chicks hatch and cradling the spring chickens and the 9-D VR cinema!
Make sure you find time to go to the show because not going is totally un-Queenslander right?
Garden of Vegan
Covent Garden – 142 Boundary St, West End
Vegan or not this event should be on your to-do list! This Thursday the 9th of August night Covent Garden is hosting their first ever vegan feasting night. A brand new menu has been developed solely for this one off night, so you should feel very special.
You can expect a sharing board with baba ganoush, olives, pickled vegetables, Lebanese flatbread and za’atar, fried cauliflower with smoked puree, wild rice and raspberry & mixed spice, and much more. There’s even a vegan dessert, but we’ll keep that one a secret so your night will be full of suprises.
The chef didn’t stop at food either, he has created specialty Garden of Vegan cocktails just for the night!
For only $37 you’d be crazy to miss out on this one! (Did we mention you get 10% off if you pre-purchase online, what’s stopping you?!)
King George Square, Brisbane
Bibimbap, K-pop and Korean BBQ. Need we say anymore? This Saturday the 11th of August Brisbane is getting a lil taste of South Korea! The Korean Cultural Festival is gracing King George Square for everyone to enjoy.
This festival is a totally free event which features all the wonderful offerings of Korea. Think Korean food stalls, live music and performances, K-pop dances (don’t lie, you actually don’t mind K-pop), taekwondo and more.
Head down to King George Square and feel as though you’re holidaying throughout Korea.
Out of the Bottle Wine Tasting
111 Constance St, Fortitude Valley
Competitive wine tasting. Have you ever heard anything that is so up your alley? Set in one of Brisbane’s best wine bars, Baedeker, is wine-enabled entertainment. This Saturday the 11th of August from 7.30pm-9.30pm you could be having the time of your life!
They’ve combined fun, wine and a lil bit of healthy competition to create six rounds of blind wine tasting. It’s been taken to another level with personalised tablets, a dedicated host, live leader board and several surprising twists! There’s even an antipasto cheese and meat board.
So, grab your squad, practise your wine drinking and book a seat ASAP as it’s expected to sell out.
