Dalby’s Delicious and DeLIGHTful Festival is Dalby’s signature multicultural festival taking place each August. In 2018, it will be a one day festival from 12 midday to 10 pm on Saturday, 18th August.
It will feature multicultural food and live entertainment with a spectacular lantern parade and fireworks display along the banks of the beautiful Myall Creek which runs through the centre of Dalby.
The spectacular Lantern Parade is unique with all lanterns created locally. In 2018, the parade will be even bigger with some wonderfully creative additions to the festival. The theme for the lanterns this year is “Under the Sea”.
The range of multicultural foods is one of the many highlights of the festival and visitors will be able to look forward to some new exciting tastes in 2018. There will be a wide range of cultural dishes to provide an international cuisine to try.
The Dalby Filipino group will be entertaining the crowds with a DeLIGHTful display of colour and traditional dance and Belswagger Morris is one of South East Queensland’s oldest and finest Morris Dancing sides.
Go on a Surfin’ Safari with Dalby Newspapers Beach Boyz Tribute Band, Musical Duo Rubatuba are back and will be bringing some DeLIGHTful sounds to the Festival with Klesmer (Gypsy) Italian, French, Celtic and Latin sounds to keep you entertained with a diverse range of music, and Culture Train, a dynamic world music tour programmed by BEMAC, which takes a collective of culturally diverse performers to regional Queensland,
Embracing and celebrating multiculturalism and inclusivity, Dalby’s Delicious and DeLIGHTful Festival attracts locals and visitors alike. There’s a fun activity for everyone, from school groups and families to young adults and the elderly. The festival offers a varied range of workshops for children and includes an Australian citizenship ceremony welcoming new Australian citizens.
In short, a fun festival to be enjoyed by all!
