Join in the celebration of Thai culture and cuisine at the 2019 Brisbane Thai Festival at the Roma Street Parkland on Sunday, 15 September 2019. The free festival runs from 10:00am to 7:00pm in the celebration precinct of the parkland.
Sample the complex fusion of sweet, sour, salty, spicy and bitter flavours which are the signature of exotic Thai cuisine with delicacies from KINN INN and the Palida Palace Thai Restaurant.
Be in the running for a round trip ticket Thailand to experience the "Land of Smiles" for yourself. The festival will also include a demonstration of Thai boxing.
The theme for this year's festival is sustainability. In keeping with this focus, the food stalls have agreed to keep at least 80% of their food packagings as biodegradable materials. Visitors are also invited to bring their own reusable/recyclable products – e.g. straws, plates, cutleries, bags – to keep Roma Street Parkland as clean as possible on the day.
The festival is organised by the Thai-Australian Association of Queensland Inc (TAAQ).
With an abundance of grass and open space, Roma Street Parkland covers 16 hectares in the centre of Brisbane. Getting there is easy since the Roma Street Parkland is adjacent to Brisbane Transit Centre and the Roma Street railway station from which it takes its name (the park does not directly face onto Roma Street). There is pedestrian access to the Roma Street Parkland from the Roma Street railway station, as well as from Albert Street,
So be sure to mark this one in your spring diary and get along to the Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane's inner city for a day of culture and connection.
