Seemingly all of Brisbane turn out for the inaugural Brisbane Times Good Food Month with more than 150 food events hosted across Brisbane and regional areas in Queensland throughout July – smashing it out of the park with the stand-out event that was the Night Noodle Markets.
The first of their kind for Brisbane, the markets attracted crowds in excess of 160,000 across the 11 nights, far exceeding event organizer and vendor expectations of 5,000 attendees per night.
The festival’s landmark event, the Night Noodle Markets, saw over 167,250 people fill South Bank’s Cultural Forecourt, consuming over 18,000 pan fried and steamed pork buns across 11 nights, and smashing event organiser and vendor expectations of 5,000 attendees per night.
At KDPR we love celebrating Queensland food and Good Food Month is all about supporting and promoting the state’s unique and varied restaurants, cafés and bars.
We began media exposure and foodie chatter with the launch of the inaugural Brisbane Times Good Food Month in April. July was when it all heated up with Good Food Month itself. Our July launch included the securing of media coverage, holistic event management support including managing invitations and VIP seating, co-hosting Good Food Month launch events, and developing and managing content across social media accounts. Unique Asian-inspired food media drops distributed specially branded fortune cookies and lion dance performances across key city locations.
