The Scandinavian Festival brings together Brisbane's communities from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Estonia for a fabulous one day festival in Bowen Hill's Perry Park.

Some 50 Scandinavian markets stalls will offer a virtual smorgasbord of traditional food (Swedish meatballs, bake potatoes and cinnamon buns, Danish pastries, cakes and bread, Estonian BBQ skewers and delicacies, Finnish Bullar, Karelian pies and goodies and Norwegian salmon and waffles), unique fashion, kids clothing, jewellery (including upcycled LEGO pieces), Scandinavian Christmas decorations, arts, crafts and design.
