Colombian Independence Day Festival

Fortitude Valley

Brisbane’s all-ages Agulia Colombian Independence Day Street Festival brings a lively and vibrant burst of South American colour and culture to Fortitude Valley on Sunday afternoon.

This family friendly fiesta, held on Ballow St outside the GPO*, celebrates Colombia’s elevation to a self-governing republic after the uprising against Spanish rule that occurred in capital Bogota on July 20 1810.
