Queensland is gearing up for its Multicultural Week, where residents across the state are encouraged to celebrate different cultures with a range of fun events and activities.
From August 31 to September 8, Queensland will be showing off all the flavours, traditions, colours and more that represent the wide variety of ethnicities in the community.
According to Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs Glen Elmes, there will be a range of community events held across Queensland.
"Queensland Multicultural Week acknowledges the value of cultural diversity to the state and its continuing contribution which makes up the very fabric of who we are in Queensland," said Mr Elmes in an August 22 statement.
"The week brings Queenslanders from all backgrounds together in a shared acknowledgement of our heritage and traditions – as well as celebrating the aspirations and values that bind us together as one community."
There are plenty of great activities scheduled for the week, from the Pacific Unity Festival on August 31 to the Multicultural Film Fest taking place from September 4-5.
