Roma Street Parkland is going to buzz again with Indian culture, food, music and fashion for the India Day Fair. The fair has been an important event on Brisbane's multicultural calendar for eight years. Hosts, Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) in Queensland, invite you and your family and friends to go along to the Parkland, on Saturday 18 August, for a non-stop celebration of India's 71st Anniversary of Independence Day in 1947.
The fair will be a multicultural family-friendly fun day full of entertainment, with FREE ENTRY kicking off at 10.30 am and running into the night until 9.00 pm. The event will be full of colour and spectacle. The showstopper act is Pradeep Sran. Other highlights include Indian culture and art, beautiful Bollywood dancers, delicious food trucks (hands up who loves Indian Food), arts and craft cultural stalls, live local and overseas traditional Indian performers, fireworks display (definitely not to be missed), lots of children's games and activities and a multicultural parade. WOW.
It is being held at the same terrific venue as past years: that is, in the Amphitheatre of Roma Street Parkland, at 1 Parkland Boulevard. It is recommended that you leave the car at home and catch public transport on the day. It is easy to get to as there are frequent trains and buses to Roma Street Transit Centre from most suburbs.
GOPIO is a non-partisan, secular global organisation engaged in promoting the wellbeing of people of Indian origin and enhancing cooperation and communication between Indian Diaspora around the world. There are over 20 million people of Indian origin living outside India. For further details see India Fair on Facebook or GOPIO.
