City Welcome Festival

City Welcome Festival

Brisbane's new students are invited to attend the annual City Welcome Festival – a day to experience Australian sports, life and indigenous culture, and an official orientation and welcome to the city.

Each year, the City Welcome Festival attracts thousands of new students to its afternoon of live music, student exhibitions, cultural activities and the Lord Mayor's International Student Friendship Ceremony – a ceremony where students can meet the Lord Mayor of Brisbane and receive their very own friendship certificate.

The next City Welcome Festival will be held in 2018. Sign up here to be notified of future events.
