Come along and learn about Nepal and taste their food
Nepal conjures up huge snow clad mountains including Everest, and this area has become a popular tourist destination. There are also now many Nepalese nationals making Perth their home - this festival is to showcase Nepal, Nepali culture and indeed their rich, cultural heritage.

It will be staged by NRNA (Non Resident Nepali Australia), Nepalese Consulate Office and Nepali Association of Western Australia (NAWA) in conjunction with other community organisations who have successfully organised festivals in Perth and are planning to host a second festival on 31st March, 2018 from 11.00 am to 7.00 pm at Elizabeth Quay, The Esplanade, Perth.

The first Nepal festival was organised in 2014 and was a huge success with around 4,000 people attending the festival throughout the day. It was a moment of pride for Nepalese communities in Perth.

The organisers of this event want to take festival attendees on a journey of discovery from east to west and north to south through various mediums. The discovery of places, people, culture, tradition and music, Nepali culture and its rich heritage, help to preserve Nepali culture among Nepalese communities in Perth.

The previous festival not only brought the Nepalese communities together by staging the biggest ever Nepali event in Perth, but it also gave a sense of belonging to many members of these communities.

Nepal Festival 2018 Perth is set to be bigger and better. Attendance figures are expected to be over 10,000 people on the day.
