“Ending the weekend the right way”Â
Returning for its third consecutive year, the Stones Corner Festival (sponsored by the Stones Corner Hotel) comes back to electrify this busy little nook of Brisbane with a crazy music line-up, food-trucks and of course, some of Australiaâ€™s best craft beer and cider brewers.
Headlining the festival are ARIA Award winners, Taxiride whom areÂ â€˜creepin’ up slowlyâ€™ on their return tour and triple ARIA Award winners The Badloves. Top it off with some fantastic local Brissy bands, Mexico CityÂ andÂ Â Halfway and Brisbane locals,Â Tyrone Noonan and Triple J Unearthed artist, Donnelle Brooks. Hold on to your pint of beer, because this right here is your gateway to a great afternoon of live Aussie music.
Speaking of beer, Brisbane-iteâ€™s are going mental over the latest craft beer and cider breweries. The Stones Corner Festival will be showcasing a wide variety of Australiaâ€™s best craft beer including the James Squires range, Byron Bayâ€™s Stone & Wood as well as Batlow Cider, Little Creatures and Mountain Goat. There are tonnes more on offer; youâ€™ll just have to come see for yourself!
Itâ€™s hard to enjoy a cold beverage without some of Brisbaneâ€™s finest and enticing food to chow down. A diverse range of food trucks and stalls will be available through The World Food Markets with some delicacies from Carolina Kitchen, Alâ€™s Smokin Pizza, Greek Street Kantina and More! If purchasing food from the markets ainâ€™t your thing, then donâ€™t forget about the restaurants and cafÃ©â€™s available on the street throughout the festival.
Go for a wander throughout the market space as Saber Events is running over 100 stallholders including: homewares, gifts, art, craft, speciality food, ice cream, sweets, entertainment: kids performances, face painting, jumping castle, petting zoo, arts and craft, books, jewellery, fashion, plants and childrenâ€™s toys.
The festival is also once again supporting the MND and Me Foundation, which in 2015 raised $7,500 for awareness on Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
There is something here for every generation and it’s FREE so you can’t say no! The Stones Corner Festival 2016 is a fantastic way to unwind with your friends and family after a chaotic week.
