This will be genuine street food, & culture from around Asia
This street fair is the 51st jubilee celebration of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). Ths will be a fair with a difference, as it will have genuine foods and cultural events from many parts of Asia, and not just one area.


Victoria hosts a large population from these nations and this event celebrates the achievements of these communities both in Victoria and Australia's great relation with ASEAN. It will be on the 7th October 2018 from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm. The venue is Queen Victoria Market, 513 Elizabeth Street, in Melbourne. Entry to this Fair is free.

Some of the consulates and embassies that will be represented at this street fair include the following:

At this fair, you will be able to have some authentic cuisine from all the above countries. Many of them will also present cultural programs of their nation.

There are diverse and very tasty foods from all these regions and you will be able to pick and choose which ones you like best! With such things as spring rolls, curries, sizzling pancakes, Nasi Lemak, beef Rendang, Udang Sambal Serai Bersantan, sambal, ikan bilis, Mohinga, Buthi Kyaw, hoke (salad), Mandalay Mee Shay (rice noodles with pork), Shan Tohu, and so much more.

ASEAN was founded in 1967 and has since turned into a community which is focused on "economic integration and growth", as well as consensus-building. This is the "ASEAN Way", and this has allowed for immense growth. ASEAN is both the world's seventh-largest market and the third-largest labour force. It is also projected that it will become the fourth-largest economic block by the year by 2030.
