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 throughout the day. 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 will also be placed throughout Queens Park.

Held in the beautiful Queens Park at the edge of Toowoomba's CBD, the festival has brought colour and excitement to the city during August for over 15 years. The 2020 celebration was cancelled due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, with the 2021 date still to be determined. For more information on the exact date and entry cost, please visit the Toowoomba Languages and Cultures Festival website.

The Toowoomba Languages and Cultures Festival provides:

  • an entertaining, drug and alcohol free family day out.
  • opportunities to try new foods and activities.
  • a sense of belonging to a diverse and interesting community.
  • a chance for the community to showcase their cultural, culinary and linguistic heritage
