GOPIO Queensland proudly presents the annual India Day Fair to commemorate India's independence.

The wide spread Indian Diaspora celebrates this day in memory of all those who sacrificed their lives for motherland India.

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT INDIA DAY FAIR


GOPIO Queensland annually organises India Day Fair to commemorate India’s Independence from British rule (on 15th August, 1947), following a largely non-violent civil disobedience movement led by Mahatma Gandhi. The widespread Indian Diaspora celebrates this day in memory of all those who sacrificed their lives for the motherland India and to commemorate India’s Independence. India Day Fair, now in its 9th year is a free community event that brings the whole community together. The event is graced by Local, State and Federal politicians who are joined by many multicultural community leaders.

The event showcases Indian Culture, food, music, fashion etc. in a festive atmosphere of the serene Roma Street Parkland. This annual event at the amphitheatre of Roma Street Parkland attracts an ever growing crowd every year.

The main stage features some of Brisbane's finest talents performing cultural and Bollywood dances, a lively cross-section of live music by local and International Bands. A variety of food and information stalls complete the festivities.
