Toowoomba Languages and Cultures Festival
The Toowoomba Languages and Cultures Festival is an annual celebration of the diversity in our community and a showcase of talents and colour from across the world! The TLC Festival is an opportunity for families to have a fun day out that offers something for everyone. There are performances from schools, professional artists and community groups, static displays of cultural interest and information from major service providers as well as diverse food stalls, activities for the young and young-at-heart and competitions.
Held in the beautiful Queens Park at the edge of Toowoomba's CBD, the festival brings colour and excitement to the city in August. Entry for adults is $5, while children are free.

- provides an entertaining, drug and alcohol free family day out
- provides opportunities to try new foods and activities
- creates a sense of belonging to a diverse and interesting community
- gives our community a chance to showcase their cultural, culinary and linguistic heritage.
