Tell me more: Brisbane's Buddha Birth Day Festival runs every year to commemorate the birth of Gautama Buddha. It's a significant celebration throughout a lot of eastern Asia and given our proximity to the region, it's little wonder as to why it remains such a popular event on Brisbane's calendar - and it's been running for over 20 years! As well as a celebration for the Buddhist community, the festival promotes itself as being a multicultural event, open to people of all ages, backgrounds or religions. There are a number of events on including singing, dancing, meditating and heaps more - even fireworks at night! It's certainly a festival with a difference and one not to be missed!
