THE FESTIVAL
Join in the celebration at the inaugural Jacaranda Gin Festival on Saturday 20th October in King Street, in partnership with Welcome to Bowen Hills and Swill Gin Bar. 

As Spring is in full bloom and the Jacarandas begin to paint the streets with colour, there is no better time to enjoy the beauty of gin surrounded by botanicals in Brisbane.
For the gin connoisseurs, fizz fanatics, liquor lovers and the movers and shakers of town...it's your time to drink and play this Spring!

 

THE EXPERIENCE
With two festival sessions designed to delight the afternoon or smooth your way through the evening, plus a VIP option for those who want the full gin-sider experience, the only question is which gin to taste first. Enjoy the flavours of Spring across a series of interactive gin stalls, bar areas or at cocktail stations around the festival. Paired with bites from Brisbane’s best food trucks or bites from the foodie hotspots in King Street, there will be delicious flavours to enjoy all day.
