We look forward to hopefully welcoming back NSW holidaymakers this month, and welcoming more visitors from interstate. Brisbane’s events calendar is set to provide plenty of exciting events for locals and tourists to enjoy this September, with continued COVID-safe measures in place for your health and safety.
Here’s what’s on in Brisbane in September 2020.
Brisbane Festival 2020
When: Friday 4th – Saturday 26th September
This month Brisbane Festival will reach all of Brisbane’s 190 suburbs. The exciting line-up features a diverse range of street concerts, impressive outdoor installations, intimate performances at various venues, and an incredible new light and laser spectacular.
There’s plenty to do, with all events individually prices, and several being free of charge. So plan ahead now, get your tickets, and prepare to be amazed.
Father’s Day 2020
When: Sunday 6th September
In this vibrant, sunny city, there are hundreds of ways to show dad how special he is this Father’s Day. Eden Gardens are offering 20% off a range of plants for Father’s Day, so why not treat dad to breakfast or lunch in their pretty creekside cafe, and a plant from the nursery?
Alternatively, enjoy a meal together at a pub, restaurant, or cafe – there are plenty to choose from! For something different consider riding around the city in a vintage automobile on an Art Deco Tour, or lunch at a brewery complete with an informative tour.
Brunch With Bite
When: Sunday 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th
Price: From $69

The event runs from 11 am-2 pm on Sundays, and the ticket price includes all entertainment, food, and unlimited specified beverages between 11:30 am-1:30 pm. Due to the nature of the entertainment, this event is strictly 18+.
