Lord Mayor's message

2020 may have been the year of cancellations but 2021 couldn’t be any different with family-favourites like Curiocity Brisbane, the World Science Festival, Brisbane Cycling Festival and Outdoor Cinemas in the Suburbs back on Brisbane’s calendar of events.

Brisbane’s Big City Barbecue will also return on Friday 26 March, featuring food trucks, the Channel Nine newsreader desk and entertainment under the stars in King George Square – all to help raise money for some of Brisbane’s most vulnerable residents.

It’s not just the events industry keeping Brisbane busy, with more than 3000 jobs being supported through the construction of new green bridges, the Indooroopilly Riverwalk, another double-decker CityCat, new ferry terminals and early works on our award-winning Brisbane Metro project.

While Brisbane residents have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with great resilience, keeping local industries moving is essential to ensuring a strong economy and Brisbane City Council remains committed to supporting local jobs wherever possible.
