The Gathering

Festivals and Celebrations

23 Jun 2019

The Gathering is a discovery of heritage and a discovery of Ipswich.

The Gathering is a celebration of the arts and culture that make up the social fabric of Ipswich.

Combining the elements of a traditional highland gathering, while introducing the community to local multi-cultural talent. Discover your heritage through bagpipes, dancing, highland muscle, the lost arts of the Celtic clans and a sea of tartan.

From morning til dusk over 5,000 people from across the region will be captivated by the Queensland Pipe Band Championships, a highland dancing competition, highland games with strongmen and audience participation such as the crown favorite tug-o-war, a vintage car display, a traditional marketplace, and a medieval clan experience. Inside the Discovery Center the audience will be taken on a journey through both Celtic and Ipswich heritage with interactive educational workshops.

Held on Sunday 23 June at the exciting Ipswich Turf Club, join them to Discover your Heritage. Discover Ipswich.
