It’s an annual tradition where Brisbane’s streets come alive with rich Asian culture.
Dumplings sizzle, dragons dance, drums beat and people get showered in a rainbow of colours.
There is so much to see and do, the hardest part is picking what events you want to go to.
To help you out, here’s a few of the all time favourites:
Undoubtedly the most colourful experience is the Brisbane Holi, taking place on February 27, where corn starch, all colours of the rainbow, is thrown into the air and over participants.
Originating in India, the Holi Festival is all about being inclusivity and equality with the slogan ‘let’s colour everyone equal.”
On the night of Saturday February 6, Sunnybank will host the BrisAsia Bizaar.
It’s an evening where local traders showcase authentic dishes, art and performances.
Now if the idea of Asian food has got your mouth salivating, you don’t want to miss the BrisAsia Food Festival which runs on the weekend of the 20th and 21st of February.
There are 10 participating restaurants across Brisbane that will be offering up awesome festival deals to celebrate BrisAsia.

You can even do free dumpling classes to take your Asian cooking skills to the next level.
At lastly you can’t celebrate a BrisAsia Festival without bringing in the Luna New Year.
On February 13, Chinatown Mall in Fortitude Valley will host one big COVID safe party to welcome in the year of the Ox.
There’ll be Lion Dancing, Japanese drumming and plenty of other vibrant cultural performances.
Some of the events might be impacted by COVID regulations.
