Brisbane Festival at Westfield Chermside

Westfield Chermside will be a hub of festival fun this September as Brisbane Festival, the most anticipated entertainment event of the year in our river city, comes to life.

As a Gold Partner of Brisbane Festival 2023 and a Presenting Partner of the Satellite Stage Program, customers can expect to see some of Brisbane’s favourite musicians perform on Thursday nights at Westfield Chermside.

Families can also don their dancing shoes and join in an 80s dance party with Common People Dance, plus learn to play Kazoo and make fun Festival Masks with BrisStyle each Saturday.

School holidays will come alive at Westfield Chermside with an array of entertainment and free activities during Kidchella. Kids can  learn Hip Hop dance moves with the much-loved Elements Collective, refine their circus skills with Flipside Circus and much more.
