A CALL has gone out to performers and cultural groups to sign on to an upcoming Springfield Lakes festival.
Formally known as the Springfield Lakes Community Open Day, the Greater Springfield Community Inc (GSC Inc) Multicultural Community Festival will be held on Saturday, July 24, from 11am to 3pm at Spring Lake Park.
GSC Inc chairman Brett Swann said the committee was keen to see the event bigger and brighter, and involve more diverse cultural groups from within the local community.
"This year, we want this event to include representation from our multicultural groups, with cultural workshops, food and dance on display," Mr Swann said.
Mr Swann said to open the festival the group had been fortunate enough to have secured the internationally renowned Nunukul Yuggera Dance Group, who would officially welcome all to the festival and country and perform.
"I recently watched this cultural dance troop perform at the Ipswich 150 celebrations and they were outstanding," he said.
"The Bollywood dancers will be back after last year's stunning performance as well as numerous other cultural groups."
Mr Swann said the day would also showcase the suburb's existing community groups, sporting groups, churches, schools and clubs.
"This will be the biggest this event has ever been," he said.
"We are hoping to create both an environment and a space in which the community can come together to celebrate our diversity and creativity."
