Brisbane's Festival of Immigration (May 31 to June 6, 1959) was one of the most colourful features of the Centenary Year celebrations. The years marked 100 years of self-government for the state. Highlights of the week were a concert by new settlers in the festival hall and a mass Naturalization ceremony for 629 new citizens in the City Hall. Nearly 300 migrants took part in the concert.
