The Tamil Pongal Festival is one of thanksgiving for the bounty of the harvest from the land. Celebrated by Tamils all over the world, this event is on Saturday 19 January 2019 from 3-9pm at Robelle Domain, Central Parklands, Education Drive, Springfield Central. Register your interest to attend this free event.


Promoting multiculturalism, it also gives you an awareness of the rich Tamil culture amongst the community of Queensland.

Celebrating in a big way, this fun filled, thanksgiving will have entertainment that's let-your-hair-down family fun. A family that plays together stays together they say, so get in on good old-fashioned traditional games like tug-of-war, the whole family can participate in. Culturally you won't be disappointed with authentic food stalls, entertainment, cooking demonstrations, floor art (kolam) and more. Kids can enjoy magic shows, fun rides, and lots of other free activities, face painting, tattoos and the likes.


If you fancy yourself a bit of an artist, the painting competitions are fair game. Immerse yourself in a day of cultural celebrations, with a spectacular fireworks finale kicking off at 8.30pm. The summer sky will ignite in a flurry of colours and sparkle. Your best vantage points are Education Drive, Springfield Markets, Robelle Cafe, USQ Springfield and Mountain Creek Bridge.
