Dalby’s Delicious and DeLIGHTful Festival (D&D) held on the fourth weekend in August is Dalby’s signature event and grows each year. With the theme in 2021 “Dalby- it's the people” it will focus on the community. The festival will include a Friday Night Talent competition. The Saturday festival begins with a Welcome Parade at noon focusing on the diversity of the community. The point of difference of this festival is the unique Lantern Parade where hundreds of individual and large lanterns built by the community are featured. Multicultural food and entertainment from both local and professionals groups are popular. This year Topology Music will work with the community to develop a 45 minute musical/dance performance of “Dalby – it’s the People”. A range of activities to involve people include a Colour Run and Mini Cultural Olympics, a Wellness Expo and an Art Walk. In conjunction with the festival Dalby Welcoming Community will organise a Dalby Peoplescape where 100 life-size corflute “people “ will highlight a range of people in the community. There are a range of other activities held in Dalby during Festival week. Check out the website for more information. This festival provides the perfect venue for people to enjoy a great community vibe and for visitors become part of the Dalby community wanting to visit again and again.
