Join us at the Buddha’s Birthday & Multicultural Festival, organized by Fo Guang Shan worldwide in celebration of the birth of Sakyamuni Buddha, the founder of Buddhism.

The iconic Elizabeth Quay will be buzzing with activities during the 2-day event to spread the message of ‘Respect and Tolerance, Consensus and Openness’, promote harmonious co-existence amongst people, and provide visitors an insight into Buddhist teachings and philosophy as a way of life to bring about peace and happiness.
