I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

Can I try ALL the food?
Heritage Research Centre at Mitcham Cultural Village
Voices of the Village Fair is a free community event hosted by the City of Mitcham at the Mitcham Cultural Village. This year the theme is multicultural, and the fair celebrates our cultural diversity with tasty regional food, fun activities for children and colourful performers.
While the Fork on the Road festival of food trucks has encouraged us to try many new culinary experiences, the Voices of the Village Fair will have some quite unique foods not yet seen at Fork on the Road.
Afghan sweets, African food, and Nava Persian food & sweets stalls will be complemented by Indonesian foods, and Spanish from Cigala Street Paella and Churroz. Regular local stall The Kumars will serve Indian food too. If you prefer something a little more traditional then Devotea will serve tea and scones, while a sausage sizzle, pancakes, gelati and coffee will be all available.
Of course you won't want to sit around savouring salubrious snacks all afternoon at Voices of the Village. There will be many moving performances scheduled throughout the day from Indonesia (music) and Ireland (dance), Spain (dance) and the Solomons Islands, Persian classical music and Afghan dancers from Finders University to entertain you.
Children will love to see Cool 4 Kids, the free face painting and balloon sculpting, and arts and crafts activities from multicultural groups.
If you're feeling adventurous why not head over to the Community Shed for a Japanese Junk (wooden boat) making class? Gallery One will also have cultural art displays, including the results from X Maps of the Imagination.
Anyone with an interest in local history will take advantage of the chance to visit the Mitcham Heritage Centre, where volunteers are happy to help you locate information about Adelaide's history. I was able to use facilities here to research my article on the Lost Tram lines of Adelaide. And like the Voices of the Village Fair, it's all free!
