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 25th festival, this time taking place at the Chung Tian Temple in Priestdale.
Running from Friday, May 6–Sunday, May 8, the 2022 program is serving up three jam-packed days of lion dances, calligraphy, art, performances and more. While it might not cater to 200,000 people as it has in pre-pandemic 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.
