If you live in Brisbane (or its surrounds), then you're likely aware of the fact that the annual Brisbane Festival has kicked off for another year.
As a 3-week celebration of the city, its culture, arts, music, food and more, it's a great time for locals and visitors to get involved and see what the city has to offer. One particular area of note is the Cultural Forecourt in South Bank where a festival-long event, Arcadia, takes place.
Throughout the entirety of the Brisbane Festival, a wealth of food trucks call Arcadia home, offering attendees a delicious mix of food from all over the world.
What is Arcadia?
Arcadia comprises a mix of free and paid entertainment, with a host of (the aforementioned) food trucks, bars, 3D chalk art, music, and two tents with regular showings of Club Swizzle and Fear and Delight (you must purchase tickets to see these two shows).

If you head to the Theatre Republic at QUT (starting 8 September), it features a garden bar with drinks and delicious meals/treats from artisan food makers. All food is curated by the Wandering Cooks.
