If you haven’t already heard, Brisbane’s first Eat Street Markets on Story Bridge has sold over 25,000 early bird tickets for its 5 July event, according to Brisbane Times.

This special event celebrates Story Bridge’s 75th birthday, and pays tribute to this iconic part of Brisbane city. Over 80 food vendors, 20 food trucks, and four bars will be spread out along the length of the bridge from 11am to 4pm; the bridge itself will be closed from 7am to 7pm.

"Story Bridge 75 will pay tribute to the much-loved and recognised icon and the significant contribution it has made to shaping Brisbane's identity," Lord Mayor Graham Quirk told Brisbane Times.

"In 2014 Council announced the Story Bridge would be made available for major events and it's fitting that the first time this will happen is to mark the 75th anniversary of the bridge."

The Eat Street Markets has been bringing a taste of South-East Asia to Brisbane since November 2013, with its bustling night markets along Hamilton Wharf every weekend. Local chefs create scrumptious international dishes in mini restaurants fashioned out of shipping containers, showcasing the best of Brisbane’s culinary talents.

This is the brainchild of four notable Brisbane names: food and market expert Peter Hackworth, producer John Stainton, entrepreneur John Harrison, and TV celebrity Jacki McDonald. They sought to recreate the vibrant, energetic, and exotic food markets in Asia, and have combined it with the flavours and talents from home.

“We are bringing ‘Eat Street’ to the Hamilton Wharf with our own style! Young musicians; warehouse pallets for seating, damn good food at a great price; ‘Eat Street’ will become the hot destination in Brisbane – there’s just nothing else like it,” said Peter Hackworth.

You’ll find a selection of pies, local seafood, hot dogs, and cuisines from all over the world, including Mexican tacos, and Singaporean dumplings and rice paper rolls. Check out a full list of food and beverages available on the day at their website.
