Emerald Showgrounds

Being held at the Emerald Showgrounds (Capricorn Highway) on Saturday 27 August (5:00 – 10:00pm), the 2011 Central Highlands Multicultural Festival will once again showcase cultural diversity and the breadth of talent in the Central Highlands region through wonderful global cuisine and dazzling dance, music and entertainment!

The festival attracts upwards of 5,000 people making it one of the largest one day events to be staged in the Central Highlands region!

Lights, camera, action…

This years’ festival program will be JAM packed, featuring highly celebrated circus performers, Circus Challenge; the greatest mariachi duo to come out of Mexico, Hey Amigos!; and new Central Highland locals, the 2PH Singers. Combine this with dance ensembles, the Sabaya Bellydancers, Emerald Dance Centre, Boots n’ all Line Dancers, Emerald Academy of Dance and throw in performances from Central Highlands best school choirs and multicultural dance troupes and you’ve got an evening of entertainment not to be missed!

Food, glorious food!

All that activity on stage you will no doubt make your tummy rumble so take your tastebuds for a trip around the world and sample some international cuisine from our food stalls. Try a Fijian curry, Mexican nachos and tacos, an American hot dog, Peruvian delight or the famous Aussie BBQ (to name just a few)! Also, back by popular demand is the International Beer and Wine Bar!

We still have limited spaces available for those wishing to organise a food stall (a great fundraising opportunity for not-for-profit and community groups!)…for all enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Show your true colours!

Do you have a national or traditional costume yourself or have you always wanted to don another’s colourful sari, gorgeous head dress, Celtic kilt, grass skirt, kaftan, akubra and R.M Williams or poncho? The 2011 Central Highlands Multicultural Festival is a great opportunity to express your identity through costume and the large number of people who appear in national/traditional dress really adds to the atmosphere on the night!

Want to get amongst it?

There are a range of sponsorship opportunities available, some for as little as $100.00, allowing you to show your support of the event and the community. Sponsorship of the festival will provide you with high exposure to Central Highlands communities in the lead up to the festival through our comprehensive promotional roll out and at the festival itself. So join the Central Highlands Regional Council, BMA and the Queensland Government (proudly funded by the Dept of Communities, Multicultural Affairs Queensland) and contact me to discuss your individual needs and the opportunities available to promote YOUR business!

In addition, the festival relies heavily on an amazing crew of volunteers…the more, the merrier so let me know if you are interested in volunteering onsite at the 2011 Central Highlands Multicultural Festival.
