Please join the Oxfam Queensland Community as we walk in the LUMINOUS Lantern Parade on Friday June 9!

The LUMINOUS Lantern Parade is Queensland’s largest welcome event of the year! The parade is designed to welcome new Queenslanders including refugees, international students, people seeking asylum and migrants.

The parade features colourful lanterns of all sizes held by representatives from government, council, business and community groups as well the broader Brisbane community, together we will be celebrating our state’s great cultural diversity. We will even have our own Oxfam lantern!!

Over 15,000 people attend this night of celebration and unity.
The event and concert program are FREE and will feature Indigenous, Bolivian, Rwandan and Colombian rhythms from some of Australia’s leading world music and dance artists.

We want there to be a sea of GREEN OXFAM supporters within the parade! Please wear a green Oxfam shirt or if you do not own a green Oxfam shirt please wear something green, so we can stand together as one!
