LYNDALL Wennekes and Nina Baumer from the Voice 2015, will be the special guests at this year’s Gold Coast Multicultural Festival, on November 1st.
Hosted by the Gold Coast Multicultural Festival Association in cooperation with Queensland Cultural Events, the Festival will colour Evandale Parklands with 3 stages of international performances, over 25 food stalls and another 40 stalls with craft sales, cultural displays, children’s rides and activities.
Head of the Festival, Ben Brauer said that the Festival truly represents the wide cultural diversity of the Gold Coast and offers visitors the chance to share and experience these in overall spirit of unity.

“Per latest statistics, 27.9% of the Gold Coast residents were born overseas and so the festival is really aimed at celebrating their cultures, but also to educate and unite the entire community,” Ben said.
Last year the Festival broke the event record with slightly over 50,000 visitors, making it the largest community cultural event in South East Queensland.
“Last year’s record attendance really sets the bar high for this year’s event, but we are going all out to make it an even better experience with a much wider variety of food and entertainment from the many different cultures,” Ben said.
“Both Nina and Lyndall are wonderful attributes to the Festival, and we are very pleased to have them perform, along with performances from 25 other nationalities.”
Nina, part of Team Madden, made it to the battle rounds and Lyndall got through to the live shows as one of Team Delta’s contestants.
The Festival will be held at Evandale Parklands on November 1 from 10am to 4pm. Entry is $5 for adults and free for children under 12 and concession card holders.
