Even between some important Hyundai A-League matches, Brisbane Roar players will be out and about in the community this weekend, appearing at the Queensland Multicultural Festival on Sunday 17 October.

With four Brisbane players coming down to the Queensland Multicultural Festival, the Roar Rapid Fire field is sure to be popular on the day, the state-s largest, free, one-day community event.

While the family-friendly festival runs all day at Roma Street Parklands, German midfield star Thomas Broich and dependable defender Milan Susak will be making an appearance between 1-2pm, while Kiwi striker Kosta Barbarouses and fan favourite Massimo Murdocca will visit during the following hour.

With the Brisbane Roar roster boasting players from Brazil, Costa Rica, Germany and New Zealand, as well as Australia, the event is a great way to embrace Queensland-s multiculturalism, with over 95 different cultures showcasing their traditions with dance, music, performances and workshops and more than 100 food, craft and information stalls.

Also on Sunday 17 October, Brisbane Roar-s injured winger Henrique, along with club mascot Roary, will be at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation-s Walk to Cure Diabetes to greet walkers as they finish their fundraising walk through Victoria Park.

Henrique and Roary will stick around for some SOLO Low Carb 3-a-side games and other activities at the event, which raises money for research to cure type 1 diabetes.

Brisbane-s next match is against Newcastle Jets on Saturday 16 October, kicking off at 7.45pm. This is earlier than originally scheduled.
