Nothing compares to the sweet, juicy bite of your first mango of the season and now you can get in early with the Brisbane Night Market Mango Festival in Rocklea every Friday from 20 September until 11 October.

As the home of fresh produce in Queensland, Brisbane Markets® has long celebrated Queensland mangoes with their famous charity event, the Brisbane Produce Market’s Mango Auction.

This year, Brisbane Markets® will be sharing the celebration of mangoes with the whole Brisbane community with a month-long Mango Festival at Brisbane Night Market.

Held every Friday from 4pm until 10pm, the Mango Festival will feature all things mango including mango-inspired street food and drinks, mango games, and a mango eating competition.

For those not so keen on mango, the Brisbane Night Market will still feature all your favourites from Brisbane’s best food trucks and vendors as well as live music, market stalls, and family fun.

Get ready to man-go overboard with the mango love at Brisbane Night Market’s Mango Festival at 385 Sherwood Road, Rocklea.
