Get festive with these Brisbane Christmas markets

All I want for Christmas is a twilight market with festive eats, treats, and beats (with Mariah on repeat!)

It’s a summer night; the winds are warm, the streets are alight. There’s Christmas music in the air and the scent of delicious street food fare. What could be the claus of such an affair? Goodwill Projects’ twilight markets, of course!

Coming to town in South East Queensland these holidays, Goodwill Projects has prepared seven (!!) festive twilight markets for all to enjoy, starting on Friday, November 12. 

The Kuraby Markets will welcome 135 stalls, with street food galore in addition to unique shopping opportunities and live music. On the following Friday, November 19, the markets will move to Beenleigh Town Square for more exciting treats and a visit from Santa Claus himself.

The Carseldine Markets is the place to be on Saturday, November 20 to tick off your Christmas pressie list with a myriad of the best creative crafters around (and another one-stop-shop for you gourmands!), and you can sleigh the night away with Wham! on repeat and heaps of entertainment for your little elves.

The Milton Christmas Twilight Markets are sure to knock your resting Grinch face off on November 27 with a bespoke Brewdolph pop-up bar featuring appearances from Milton Rum Distillery and Stone & Wood, and the chance for ‘elfies with Santa. You can also catch the essential stalls with delectable eats, artisan goods, and live entertainment. If you missed the pop-up bar, head over to the Nundah Markets for their festive affair on December 4 for a markets sipping and shopping date yule not want to miss!

On December 11, market-goers from Redcliffe and Surfers Paradise can marvel at the beachfront views and squeeze in some Christmas shopping while celebrating the holidays. To mark the end of Goodwill’s twilight tour, Redcliffe’s Christmas markets will also have flashy fireworks to set the night alight.
