Queen Victoria Markets are proudly hosting the Sri Lankan Awurudhu Pola (New Year Celebration) 2021 on Sunday 18 April 2021 from 10am to 4pm. After an extremely successful event in 2019, it was a no brainer to bring the celebrations back to the market. There'll be a variety of food stalls, a stage lineup of all your favourite local Sri Lankan artists, live bands, traditional dance performances and workshop activities.
If you're familiar with Sri Lankan staples like kottu, hoppers, and curries plus favourite sweets like kokis to top it off, you'll be in your happy foodie heaven. If you're not, it's time to try it out and find out what everyone is raving on about. A celebration of culture, heritage and arts from Sri Lanka, it's a chance to get together for Awurudhu Pola right here in Melbourne. The event will be bustling with all of the aforementioned, cooking demonstrations and kids activities. Be there for this colourful, cultural event and experience our multicultural Melbourne.
