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 19 at Rocks Riverside Park in Seventeen Mile Rocks, 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 inclusiveness and equality with the slogan ‘let’s colour everyone equal.”
