Adelaide is a wonderfully multicultural city, full of the vibrancy, colour and excitement of many different nationalities and cultures and what better way to celebrate that than at the 2019 Multicultural Festival.
The 2019 Multicultural Festival will enable you to taste, experience and celebrate South Australia's cultural diversity on Sunday 10 November 2019 from 11 am to 5 pm in Victoria Square, Tarntanyangga, Adelaide.
Immerse yourself in the spectacular atmosphere with over 75 community groups, featuring up to 50 cultures all coming together for a fantastic fun day.
At this family-focussed event, you will be able to enjoy international cuisines, traditional music and dancing and activities for everyone from grandparents to young children.
Browse amongst the stalls of many cultures such as the Dutch Community, Pacific Islands Council of SA, Australian Egyptian Society or Dozynki Polish Harvest Festival. With 36 to choose from, there will be plenty to explore.
Enjoy performances from the Kalinka Russian Ensemble, Mexican Revolution Dance Group, Adelaide Chinese Dance Academy or Diversity Music Collection, to name just a few. With performances running every 10 minutes from 11 am to 4.50 pm, you will have plenty of entertainment to enjoy while you sample a range of multicultural cuisines.
Get active with outdoor activities. You can learn to sing traditional Chinese songs, play the Erhu (Chinese fiddle) or maybe dance along with and learn to play traditional drums. Activities run for 30 minutes in the outdoor activity area from 11 am to 4.30 pm.
If you are looking for something that lasts a little longer and is a little less active, head to the indoor activity area to try traditional games and saree tying at 11 am, make a kokoshnik (Russian traditional headdress) at 12.25 pm, make a motanka doll or traditional painting (Ukrainian) at 1.40 pm, Japanese origami folding at 2.55 pm or make a traditional Chinese lantern, fan, paper cut-out or bracelet at 4.10 pm.
