Scandinavian Festival brings cultural fun to Bowen Hills
Australia prides itself on being a multi-cultural nation and with that embraces people from all backgrounds and nationalities who wish to call Australia home.

The festival will be celebrated in Perry Park, 34 Folkstone Street, Bowen Hills from 10.00 am to 4.00pm. Entry is a $2.00 gold coin.

The first Scandinavian Festival began in 2012 when the Danish Club were celebrating their 140th anniversary and decided they wanted to have something else than the usual black-tie dinner. This year, the festival is brought to you by The Danish Association Heimdal, Norwegian Club of QLD, Swedes Down Under, The Finnish Club, The Estonian Association and 2018's newest addition, the Latvian Club.

The festival attracts over 15,000 visitors each year and is supported by The Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council along with major sponsors FiT Maintenance & Cleaning and 50 Degree North Travel Specialist. If you wish to be a sponsor and be part of this event, you can contact the festival organisers here. You may have a unique product or service with a Scandinavian connection that the organisers would love to consider for this event.
