The highlight of the event is the array of traditional Indonesian food and drinks stalls, but there is so much more to the festival with workshops, live music, and entertainers suitable for the whole family. There will also be non-food stalls from Indonesian vendors. Details on stallholders and activities have not been released, but in previous years the festival boasted art exhibits and workshops, impressive dance performances, and a fashion show.
As usual, it is being held at the Box Hill Town Hall on the mother's day weekend in May. However, this year it is being held on the Saturday rather than the Sunday. The festival spans the whole afternoon and early evening from midday to 7pm- so drop in for lunch, dinner, or both!
