An exclusive VIP ceremony was held in the Parklands Function centre from 1pm-3pm which was attended by festival organisers, community leaders, politicians, bureaucrats, media identities, sponsors and other special guests. A keynote speech was delivered at this ceremony by the Member for Fairfield, Hon. Guy Zangari. Other notable performances included a poem by Anne Tatherway, Quran citation and translation by Talib Bismi and a speech by MEFF President Mehar Ahmed. After the proceedings, VIP's were escorted over to the main stage area where the Federal Member for Fowler, Hon. Chris Hayes gave a speech.
