Santhom Fest

  • St. Thomas, The Apostle Syro Malabar Parish, Brisbane South, established in May 2015 under the Syro Malabar Eparchy of St. Thomas the Apostle, Melbourne. Currently, the parish has a membership of 300 families migrated from Kerala, India and they are residing in and around Brisbane South. Our parish is a congregation of a thousand members including adults, youths and children. Recently, the parish has purchased a property with a church close to Browns Plains Queensland (108-112 Middle Rd. Hillcrest), which will help a growing community like us to conduct various cultural and religious programs. We are also planning to develop the property as a hub for spiritual and charitable activities in the future.   

    We are planning to host a Multi-Cultural dance and food festival on the 26th of May 2018 and have plans to conduct this event regularly every year.  This event aims to develop a deeper understanding of the customs and traditions of diverse communities in Brisbane and Logan area.  Community harmony and resilience is greatly influenced by our ability to come under one umbrella and develop a partnership with shared values and joint activities.  This event will experience a vast mixture of cultures coming together under one banner to experience the ability of people in Brisbane and Logan to unite and transcend boundaries of race, cast, culture, age and gender; or merely having rejoiced by an array of cultural performances.

    We expect approximately 1500-2000 people will come and enjoy this Multi-Cultural event.  The celebrations will include dance and other cultural performances from different ethnicities like Chinese, African, Samoan, Tongan, Australian and various communities of India.  Delicious south Indian and other multi-cuisine food will be available on sale to replenish the energy for more dance, fun and play.

    The entry will be free of cost.  Therefore, we are seeking sponsors for this event to ensure prominent publicity and meet the expenses.  Sponsors can put their banners at the festival venue; advertise on food coupon, fliers, website and the anchors will announce the sponsors many times during the event.  You can choose among the various sponsorship packages, the details that are enclosed.

    We prominently value your sponsorship and appreciate your contribution to this noble cause.  We also take this opportunity to invite you to our multi-cultural festival with your family, friends and colleagues.  Please contact us for any further information you may require.
