Greek Festival of SydneyOne of Australia's largest and longest-running cultural events, the Greek Festival of Sydney is a bit of an institution. It's taken over Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour, with dancing, loukoumades and ouzo every year for almost four decades — and it shows little sign of slowing down. This year, the festivities start Saturday, February 29, with market stalls, live music, dance and cultural performances, and all of the delicious Greek food and drinks your stomach can handle. Sip an iced cold kafe kai frappe, enjoy a souvlaki wrap, load up on sugary loukoumades, and unwind with a few Mythos beers and an ouzo or two. The festivities continue on Sunday, with more food (and more ouzo) and a night performance from singer Giota Negka, who is performing in Australia for the first time. The Greek Festival of Sydney will run from 3–10pm on Saturday and 10am–10pm on Sunday.
From 29 February to 1 March

BrisAsia Festival 2020If you live in Brisbane, you've heard all about the city's connections with Asia; we are the home of the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art and the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, after all. Since 2013, the BrisAsia Festival has also been on that list, paying homage to the culture of our neighbours. Timed around Lunary New Year — running from Saturday, February 1–Saturday, February 29 this year — the 2020 program features yet another mix of traditional and contemporary Asian arts, channelled into events across Brisbane. And while some of the unmistakable highlights will serve up a feast for your stomach — a new Valley of Spices festival in Fortitude Valley, plus a BrisAsia Bazaar with markets and street food — that's just the beginning of the fun. Where do we start? Attend a lunar new year rooftop party, dress up for a cosplay-filled summer shindig at Reddacliff Place or head to a Chinese festival in King George Square. Or, pair some Asian food with a film, embark on a culinary tour of Sunnybank, dance at a silent disco, bust out your gaming skills and do yoga all over the city.
From 1 to 29 February

Lunar New Year in the Chinatown MallWhen Lunar New Year rolls around, there's one obvious place to go in Brisbane: the Chinatown Mall. Lion and dragon dances will saunter through the Fortitude Valley spot, fire shows will light up the night and traditional music will provide the soundtrack — as will an array of cultural performances and street performers. Beneath plenty of lanterns, these Year of the Rat celebrations will also include workshops — so learn a new skill while you're commemorating the occasion. It all happens from 4–9pm on Saturday, February 1 and 12–5pm on Sunday, February 2, and entry won't cost you a thing. And if you're wondering about the tastiest part of Lunar New Year celebrations — the food, obviously — you'll be in the absolute best place thanks to Chinatown's many eateries. We recommend booking in advance, though, as you won't be the only one with that idea.
From 1 to 2 February

5K Foam FestThese days, plenty of events have been putting the 'fun' in fun run. Some take you jogging through a winery, then let you sip wine. Others ask you to dress up like your favourite Star Wars character, or as Batman. And, you can decked out with colour while you put one foot after another, too. They're all well and good — but if you're eager to sprint through foam, tumble down waterslides and make your way through mud pits across a five-kilometre obstacle course, you'll want to head to the 5K Foam Fest. Hitting up Sirromet Winery on Saturday, January 11 and Sunday, January 12, this event will get you running, sliding, climbing, crawling, bouncing, hurdling, hopping through tyres and slipping over tubes. In total, you'll need to conquer more than 20 obstacles. And, although this should be obvious, you can expect to get wet, muddy and foamy while you're doing so. There's a reason that we keep stressing the foam, with 2.5 million cubic feet of it used across the course. Plus, there'll be some on your beer when you have a few cold ones in the beer garden once you're done. Tickets are on sale for both days of this family-friendly affair. If you'd like to have your entry fee reimbursed, you also have the option of using the event to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation. Image: 5K Foam Fest.

Night Owls Film Festival 2020A free outdoor film festival in the CBD for kidults and adults alike. Nothing inspires those carefree summer feels quite like a spot of outdoor cinema — especially when the flicks are free. This January marks the return of Darling Quarter's ever-popular al fresco film screenings, delivering 17 nights of outdoor movie magic for young and old (and in between). Taking over the precinct's Village Green from January 9 to 25, the annual Night Owls Film Festival will this year kick off at 6pm nightly with a special family-friendly program — think kids' entertainment, a series of short films and a family feature film from 6.45pm. If your inner child (or actual child) loves flicks like Toy Story 4, Aladdin, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part and Pokemon Detective Pikachu head along then. But come nightfall on weekends, it's the big kids' turn, with a program of grown-up movies screened from 8.30pm on select evenings. Titles such as A Star is Born, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, Bohemian Rhapsody and Yesterday are all on the lineup, rounding out with Crazy Rich Asians as the closing night film. Be sure to bring along your picnic rug and accompany your cinema experience with eats from one of the many nearby vendors — Thai, sushi, pizza, Brazilian barbecue and gelato are all a short stroll away.
From 9 to 25 January

Melbourne CupMelbourne Cup Day is one of Australia’s most popular social and racing events. The main racing event takes place at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria. More than 100,000 people usually attend Flemington Racecourse. Local races are held throughout the country on this day and when the main race of the day occurs at the Flemington Racecourse it is televised on screens at race tracks across Australia. The race is televised live to an audience of about 650 million people worldwide. Many people stop what they are doing shortly before 3pm on Melbourne Cup Day to watch or listen to the main race either via television, Internet or the radio. At the races, people dress up – many women wear their best or most colorful hats and dresses, with some participating in fashion parades on the field. Marquees are set up for VIP guests, including local, national and international celebrities who attend this festive event. Champagne, wine and gourmet finger foods are usually served on this day. Many offices across the Australia stop work closer to the time of the main race to celebrate the event. Activities include office parties that feature hat and dress competitions, staff lunches at restaurants and afternoon teas where a television is available so workers can watch the main race. Bets are made on this day – even those who usually do not bet try their luck with a small wager or entry into a sweep, which is a lottery in which each ticket holder is matched with a randomly drawn horse.
