The vision of the Toowoomba Languages and Cultures (TLC) Festival is a celebration of the diversity of languages and cultures that exist within the Toowoomba region. The festival has included participants from around South West and South East Queensland.
Our aim is to bring together different organisations within the Toowoomba region to support and encourage a sense of belonging and community harmony in our area. The TLC Festival is an opportunity for families to have a fun day out that offers something for everyone.
