Fest — annual events that welcome Brisbane's Refugee Community in June
20,000 plus Queenslanders from all walks of life welcomed their newest Queenslanders with Multicultural Development Association's Luminous Lantern Parade and Concert at South Bank Parklands.
The welcoming continues through to the big Welcome Fest June 14, a free and vibrant community event that brings Brisbane's diverse cultural communities together to create welcome, discover cultures and celebrate everyone's contribution to multicultural Australia.
