The shortest day of the year definitely won’t feel that way if you spend it at the West End Solstice Markets, when it returns this June to herald the beginning of winter in true Brisbane fashion!
As Brisbane’s cultural hub, West End is a fitting venue for the Solstice Markets and its eclectic mix of entertainment, health and wellness, arts, crafts, and culture.
Here’s a sneak peek into the activities to expect:
- Mala bead-making workshops with Earthly Magic Studio – Limited spaces available (heavily discounted price of $55 – was $175)
- Free yoga with Wild Peace
- Free Community garden workshops with Jane Street Community Gardens
- Free Circus workshops for all ages [incl. fire twirling and plate spinning]
Visitors will also get the chance to explore the Indigenous Art Gallery Walk, which includes artists Paul Bong & Jenny Pineapple at the gallery laneway.
There will also be not one, not two, but EIGHT bonfires, a great way to ward off the winter chill and receive the light and warmth of the solstice.
Roving fire twirlers & height-defying stilt walkers will put up a mesmerising show, as they too embrace the symbolism of fire and light. Live music on two stages, roving local musicians, gourmet street food, and mulled wine at the Stone & Wood pop-up bar all conspire to make this Friday event a fitting end to the work week and a warm hello to the beginning of winter.
