Event:
Take part in the colourful and vibrant celebration of rich Kirat culture at the Kirat Festival on Birrarung Marr's Lower Terrace, on Saturday May 23rd, from noon to 5pm.

Celebrated in May to pray to Mother Nature for rain for the crops and to provide protection from natural calamities, the Kirat Festival includes cultural shows, and food and handicraft stalls.

This year, the festival will be used as a platform to raise much needed funds for the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal that has left the country in devastation. There will be a range of activities during the festival to collect donations, with all profits donated to the disaster recovery efforts.

Other organisations you can donate through:
Unicef
UNHCR
Red Cross
Save The Children
Oxfam
