A culinary world tour; all our favourite rice dishes in one place! This free event is packed with entertainment for the whole family and includes cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs and vendors passionate about their food. If you've been hankering for familiar favourites you've had on your travels, this will likely be the place you'll find it. Learn about the amazing grain and watch cultural performances from around the world. Come hungry and bring family and friends for a great night out.
Celebrate cultural diversity with the humble rice that is the grain of many cultures, and a part of the daily grind, and celebrations. It truly symbolises and encapsulates the savoury and sweet of life. This World Rice Festival tries to capture the untold stories and you may well find rice producer destinations that are completely alien to you. Find out more by joining in and celebrate multiculturalism through food, drink and music performances.
