Eat, listen and learn at the BrisAsia Festival 2015
Various nooks and crannies of Brisbane will be bursting with aromatic foods, traditional music and gifted entertainers for three fun-packed weeks of the BrisAsia Festival 2015.
Australia is fortunate enough to be blessed with residents hailing from all over this mighty globe. Our proximity to Asia and strong ties to the region have afforded us insight and understanding into a very rich network of cultures. From this Friday February 6, Brisbane will come together in a wonderful community celebration for BrisAsia Festival 2015.
Over three enjoyable weeks to Sunday March 1, various venues throughout the city and suburbs will be holding their own special celebrations. Join the free Opening Night Party from 7:00–10:00 pm this Friday at Reddacliff Place in Brisbane City, where you’ll find food trucks, interactive activities and Bollywood-inspired band The Bombay Royale. This Sunday February 8, enjoy free traditional Japanese music in the Japanese Gardens at Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mount Coot-tha from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, learn how to create an edible garden using Asian vegetables in Carindale on Sunday February 15 or hear from Asian creative industry professionals at Metro Arts from 6:00–8:00 pm on Tuesday February 18. Take part in one of the hands-on Art Bites workshops, where you can learn how to make Asian treats or sculpt small finger bowls, and of course don’t miss the many Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations happening across the city in February.
