Your Guide To What’s On This WeekJun 21, 2018


Food, films, and the beach. Is that not just a trio made in heaven? That’s exactly what Brisbane has got lined up for this week – separately, though, not together (although that would be amazing).

Studio Ghibli Festival
175 Elizabeth Street, Brisbane

Brisbane-whats-on-weekend-events-free-best-top-what-to-do-where-go-family-bbq-festival-movies-food-drinks-friends-005

Twice a week this winter you can venture into a world of magic, wonder, and innocence – whilst never leaving your seat. The Elizabeth Picture Theatre is hosting a Studio Ghibli film festival, screening 8 of their most popular films.

Tickets are just $12 (another way to revisit your childhood – remember when life was affordable?) and showing times are every Thursday night and Sunday arvo. The films will be screened in their original Japanese with English subtitles.

Eats And Beats Food Truck Festival
345-355 Browns Plains Road, Heritage Park

Just in time for the FIFA World Cup, Brisbane Roar FC is hosting the next Eats and Beats Food Truck Festival at their new training facilities, Logan Metro Sports Park.

All Brisbane Roar fans out there – this is your dream come true, because you’ll get to rub shoulders, take selfies, and plain hang out with the team members. If you’re lucky you might get a tour of the training grounds!

The sports park will be packed full with over 30 food trucks to keep your stomach happy through the evening. You’ve only got 4 hours from 5-9pm on Friday June 29th to fill up on food and inside jokes with the Brisbane Roar team, so get down early and make the most of it!

2001: A Space Odyssey 50th Anniversary Screening
39 James Street, Fortitude Valley

Brisbane-whats-on-weekend-events-free-best-top-what-to-do-where-go-family-bbq-festival-movies-food-drinks-friends-005

Kubrick’s iconic, Academy award-winning film is going to be showing at Palace Cinemas, but not like you’ve seen it (if you have seen it).

This screening will be the first of a new 70mm format of the film.  What’s the big deal about 70mm? It contains an entirely new level of detail and richness, making the darkness (metaphoric and literal) of this masterpiece that much more intense.

Showings are from Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July and tickets are $20, so basically you can have your mind blown in high-def for a bargain.

Brisbane BBQ Festival
271 Gilchrist Avenue, Herston

Brisbane-whats-on-weekend-events-free-best-top-what-to-do-where-go-family-bbq-festival-movies-food-drinks-friends-005

Yep, you read right: that’s a 2-day festival dedicated to all things BBQ. Over 15 BBQ food vendors will be serving up their unique, charred meats, with bevs to wash it all down.

There’ll be BBQ demonstrations, a BBQ Expo and Market, and a BBQ competition, where registered teams will battle (or smoke?) it out to see whose prime cuts are the best!

Tickets starting from $15 will give you a day pass to the festival, where you can gorge yourself on delicious, umami-laden goodness.

Wynnum Central Beach Volleyball
The Esplanade, Wynnum

Brisbane-whats-on-weekend-events-free-best-top-what-to-do-where-go-family-bbq-festival-movies-food-drinks-friends-005

Once summer is well and truly gone, the historic Wynnum Wading Pool turns into a sandy expanse housing 4 beach volleyball courts.

They open on June 30 and are available to the public for free. The program finishes off with a Battle of Waterloo Beach Volleyball challenge for anyone who wants to put their skills to the test.

All that’s left for you to do is grab your friends and start practising your serves!
