Paniyiri Greek Festival Online
For the first time in its 43 year history Brisbane's famous Greek festival, Paniyiri, is going online, being live-streamed on Sunday May 24th from 2-4pm.
While it was due to be held this weekend, it had to be cancelled for the first time ever, due to the COVID-19 crisis. But nothing comes between the Greeks and their iconic festival so they are hosting a 2 hour Paniyiri Facebook live celebration, featuring some of the festival's best-loved events.
There'll be Greek cooking demonstrations; live Bouzouki sessions, Zorba dancing lessons, tours of the Greek Othodox Church of St George, and a lesson on Greek costumes.
And, to really get in the spirit, you can order traditional Greek food for the occasion from Nostimo Restaurant, who will be offering takeaway specials to celebrate all weekend.
