Celebrate Narellan's colour, music and vibrancy
Sydney is an expansive and expanding city, and many cultural hubs can be found in various areas. One of them, in the Macarthur region of Narellan, will be celebrating its rich cultural diversity with its 9th annual Narellan Rhythms Festival.

On Saturday, 22nd October from 5pm to 9pm, the Narellan Library Plaza (Elyard Street, Narellan) will be a hive of activity as the Narellan Rhythms Festival comes alive with light, colour and music. An Aboriginal Welcome to Country by Glenda Chalker officially opens the evening at 7pm, along with an Aboriginal Smoking ceremony and dance by Josh Bell and the Koomurri Birrays performers. The opening will be followed by a screening and premiere of Different Paths (a locally produced short documentary about multiculturalism in the Camden area) at about 7:45pm.
