During the dry season, when the Darwin weather is nice and friendly (not too hot and humid), a lot of outdoor festivals will be held here, including family-friendly festivals, multicultural festivals and music festivals.

Glenti Festival celebrates Greek culture and the community through cuisine, dance and singing. Once every two years, Darwin will celebrate everything Italian with the Italian Festival. Pesona Indonesia, Thailand Grand Festival and India at Mindil are some other festivals with an Asian flavour. Mouthwatering traditional cuisine, colourful traditional costume and many other unique customs are displayed at these multicultural festivals.
