Gladstone Region Multicultural Week Events

This year’s Gladstone Region Multicultural Week & Festival Day kicks off Friday the 26th of August and runs until the 4th of September.  The 10 day celebration invites Gladstone business’, organisations, community groups and the public to take part and help promote multiculturalism in the Gladstone Region. It also provides the opportunity for all cultures that contribute to the community to share their art, music, food and traditions.

There are a number of activities held throughout the week that are open to the public, and the final celebration will be the Gladstone Multicultural Festival Day on Sunday the 4th of September. The Festival will run from 9am to 4pm at the Gladstone Marina Parklands. We would like to encourage all the Gladstone Region’s residents take part in all the events throughout the 10 days of activities.
