The much-loved, annual Buddha's Day & Multicultural Festival returns to Federation Square on Saturday 15 May and Sunday 16 May with an explosion of culture, entertainment, traditional Buddhist ceremonies, meditation, lion dances, children’s activities and so much more!

Proudly presented by Fo Guang Shan Melbourne and BLIAV (Buddha's Light International Association of Victoria), this major two-day festival encourages people of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate our multicultural society and commemorate the birth of Buddha.

To celebrate the Festival’s 25th anniversary, spectacular digital displays will light up Federation Square and flood the Square with an animated story of the life of Buddha against a kaleidoscopic backdrop of floral and botanic images.

Wander through our inaugural Lotus Flower Sanctuary, comprising 20 sky-high illuminated lotus flowers and rest beneath their stems for some quiet contemplation. For those more artistically minded, colour your way to peace in our Mindfulness Forest, think Good Thoughts, do Good Deeds and speak Good Words as you pour fragrant water over the infant Buddha in our new Bathing Buddha Arches, or join in one of our many free Monster Bubble classes to make the world’s largest bubbles!

Recognised as a significant event in Melbourne’s calendar and sponsored by the City of Melbourne, the Victorian Multicultural Commission and Federation Square, the Festival’s primary goals are to promote peace and harmony, respect and magnanimity, compassion and cultural awareness, and to share the spirit of joy and happiness within Victoria’s community.
