Buddha’s Birthday Festival
Every year when Buddha’s Birthday approaches a special event is held in celebration at Darling Harbour. Organised by FGS Nan Tien Temple, its various FGS branches in Sydney and the Buddha’s Light International Association (BLIA) Sydney. Thanks to greater public interest and the increasing support of members, devotees and the Darling Harbour Authority, the festival is now a two-day event.
The celebration includes an International Vegetarian Food Fair which unites culinary delights from China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, India, Malaysia and other nations. Visitors can also enjoy traditional and modern music, as well as dance performances from China, India, Sri Lanka, Japan, Vietnam, Australia and other cultures.
