Get festive with these Brisbane Christmas markets

‘Tis the season for Christmas…which means markets!

And lots of it. Sleigh the festive season with our list of Brisbane’s best Christmas Markets.

Paddington Christmas Festival | 6 December

Set to be a fun, food-fuelled twilight market for the whole family, Paddington Christmas Festival will take over the businesses of Latrobe Terrace on Friday, December 6! You certainly won’t leave hungry (or thirsty), after you dig into some of King Tea’s delicious dumplings, an aperitivo at Il Posto, a cocktail at Naim, and join in the beer and wine tasting at Hai Hai. 

Nundah Christmas Markets | 7 December

The popular spot for locals of a Sunday morning is shaking things up with a very special twilight market on Saturday, December 7! Expect to see over 150 specialty stalls, entertainment, DJs, a pop-up bar and loads of global eats. Head to the German Hut for an authentic bratwurst, fresh baked pretzels, pork knuckle or kranskis, or grab a frozen treat from the great people of Gelato Messina. Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers will be serving up some carbalicious eats and the team from Marinade are taking things low and slow with their 72-hour slow-cooked lamb.

Festive Flavours at Brisbane Night Markets | 6, 13, 20 December

The very best eats of the Christmas season have arrived at Brisbane Night Market, as they deliver three huge nights of Festive Flavours. Some of Brisbane’s very best food trucks and stalls will flock to serve some classic Chrissy eats, and add their only little twist to your favourites. We can already picture ourselves with a huge flame-grilled turkey drumstick in one hand, and a spiced sarsaparilla iced tea in the other…

Brace your elves! The Sandstone Point Hotel’s annual Christmas Carnival is back and ready to spread some Christmas magic to families, foodies, and those from afar! Head down from midday to enjoy markets, food stalls, kids rides and live entertainment by the waterfront.
