The Townsville Cultural Festival is a completely not-for-profit festival organised by the Townsville Intercultural Centre. The festival aims to showcase the diversity of Australian music, food, arts and culture, bringing people together in celebration of life itself. From Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st August over 100 performing groups will take to the multiple stages, offering everything from folk, blues and hip-hop, to Indigenous Australian music, African drum circles, as well as Latin, Pacific Islander and Middle Eastern dance groups.
TC Fest includes over 100 food and market stalls from around the world, offering arts and crafts, workshops and presentations, fashion, food and produce. This year there will be a Music stage, a Dance stage, a Chai Tent stage for intimate sets, and a Zen space for chilling out. Around the grounds you will find everything from roving performers and interactive art installations, to show rides and henna tattoo stalls. Join us in this celebration of Unity in Diversity.
