The Valley Multicultural Festival
For your shot of culture this weekend check out the Multicultural Festival which will be lighting up Brisbaneâ€™s Fortitude Valley this Saturday 20 July for the very first time. The free festival spans over 9 hours from 1-10pm, and is aÂ livelyÂ combination of music, art, markets, dancing and performing artists that will take over the Valleyâ€™s Chinatown Mall. The festival will celebrate the diverse mix of cultures and cultural influences that make the Valley such a unique place, and will showcase cultural performances from a range of South East Asian countries.
Enjoy performances fromÂ the Filipino Australian Cultural Entertainment group who will be presenting a number of traditional Filipino danceÂ actsÂ throughout the day. You can also check outÂ performances by the Thai Sunday School, who will be presenting cultural dances originating from Thailand.Â The cultural extravaganza will also display aÂ large variety of market stalls,Â including the ThaiÂ ChivaÂ Suk stall. Get in early to be one of the first 20 customers who will receive a free 10 minute massage!
The usual Valley Markets willÂ still be buzzing in the nearby Brunswick Street Mall if you feel like wandering off to find someÂ vintageÂ fashion pieces or some bargain items. So head into the heart of the Valley this Saturday (during the day for a change!)Â and enjoy theÂ vibrant sights, sounds and tastes of Brisbane’s diverseÂ cultures.
