The family-friendly fair explores everything to do with green living in Brisbane, with sustainability displays and cooking demonstrations, kids’ activities, market stalls, live entertainment, native plant giveaways and more! There is something for every member of your family and best of all; everything (except for the food and drinks) is free!
What to expect at the Green Heart Fair
The Green Heart Fair will have more than 100 leading sustainability organisations and community groups sharing valuable information on how to live a greener lifestyle and offering tips for reducing the cost of living in your home. For Brisbane Kids, there are two areas dedicated just to them- a Kids’ Hub and Healthy Active Kids’ Sports Area. The Kids’ Hub features a rock climbing wall, face painting, art and craft activities, jumping castle, Geckoes Wildlife and more to keep the kids busy for hours. The Sport Area is where kids can get active and play soccer, rugby and baseball to mention but a few. Plus there is live entertainment for young and old on two stages. Past entertainers who have attended the Green Heart Fair include Dirt Girl, Peppa Pig, The Octonauts and Dora The Explorer for the kids and celebrity chefs and a wide range of talented local bands for the big kids. Couple all this with roving performers, market stalls, amazing food, cooking demonstrations, plant giveaways, great prizes and lots, lots more at each and every Green Heart Fair and you have an amazing and free family day out.

Green Heart Fair Dates
There are two Green Heart Fairs held each year. The first event is held on the north-side in May or June at 7th Brigade Park in Chermside, while the second event is held on the south-side in September or October at Carindale Recreational Reserve. The best bit about the Carindale, is the Brisbane Billycart Championships. Brisbane’s biggest billycart championships are held on a grass track and kids of all ages (including adults) from all over Brisbane are invited to make and race their own billycart.
