We couldn’t ask for better partners than Tourism & Events Queensland who proudly support our first ever Wild Foods & Cultural Festival this Sunday 15 November, from 10am-3pm.
If you’re looking for things to do in Brisbane, or Gold Coast, this free community event is in celebration of National Aborigines & Torres Strait Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) and the start of our Year of Indigenous Tourism Celebrations, which have been extended into 2021 due to COVID.
Speaking of COVID, this event will be run as a COVID safe event under our COVID Safe Industry Event plan, which means to keep our guests and staff safe we will require all attendees to check in via QR code for contact tracing, observe physical distancing, stay home if unwell, hand sanitise throughout the day and be patient as you try to get around to see everything.
The entertainment for our Wild Foods & Cultural Festival Event at Spirits of the Red Sand is outstanding and more is being added to the line up every day.
Entertainment includes: Live cooking demonstrations, pioneering Indigenous blues & country singer Adam James, Chris Tamwoy – Australia’s Got Talent, Joel Wiggins – The Voice, a variety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural performance groups, artefacts and demonstration workshops, ancient Aboriginal ceremonies and traditions, over 30 stalls (and growing) showcasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, artists, and vendors, plus for the kids – jumping castles, face painting, boomerang painting and more – all free, although a gold coin donation is appreciated to support not-for-profit Beenleigh Historical Village, home to Spirits of the Red Sand, and where the event will be hosted.
So if you want to immerse yourself in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture, bush foods, arts and more – then join us on Sunday 15 November at Spirits of the Red Sand, voted Queensland’s No 1 Must-do experience.
