Like commemorating the birth and life of famous figures? Like multicultural festivities that shed a light on diversity and harmony? If so, it's party time. Brisbane's annual Buddha Birthday Festival is back for its 24th festival, this time taking place at the Chung Tian Temple in Priestdale.

Running from Friday, May 14–Sunday, May 16, the 2021 program serves up three jam-packed days of lion dances, calligraphy, art, performances and more. While it probably won't cater to 200,000 people as it has in previous years, you still won't find yourself lacking in either company or something to watch.

The festival isn't just about seeing other people strut their stuff, though. With a vegetarian food fair serving up culinary delights, tea ceremonies keeping you hydrated, meditation sessions taking care of your mental bliss and red lanterns on display, this isn't just a feast of entertainment; it's a complete mind and body experience as well.
