The last time Brisbane saw a Festival of Chariots was in 1997 as part of the Springtime Warana Festival. Since then, the Festival of Chariots has happened in nearby locations like on the beaches of Byron Bay, as part of the New Year’s Eve Parade in Byron Bay, the Banana Festival in Murwillumbah and more recently in Surfers Paradise.
Brisbane has also seen the Festival of Chariots happen on a smaller scale in various parks in different suburbs. This year, we wanted to bring the festival to as many people as possible – and Brisbane CBD seemed like the perfect fit! So continue to visit our website to find out more updates about all the exciting things we’ve got planned!
The Festival of Chariots is organised by a dedicated group of volunteers who all belong to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), also well known through their charity arm – The Hare Krishna Food for Life. A passionate and talented group of people, they have already had experience with other major festivals like the Golden Moon Festival in Forest Lake, Spring Flare in St Lucia and the Le Carnaval Spirituel travelling show.
