Rescheduled due to last weekend's bad weather
Last weekend was meant to be the first World Curry Festival in the City, however with a cold snap due and snow forecast on the mountains, organisers cancelled it the day before. For those who were brave enough to venture out to experience it, apologies, however organisers believed it wouldn't have been pleasant for the stall holders or the public to be out in such weather. So this weekend it is back on, and hopefully the crowds will again follow.

Running over both days on the weekend, there will be market stalls, street food stalls, celebrity chefs and live entertainment including Bollywood dancing. With so many popular Indian and Asian restaurants in Canberra, it will be heaven for curry-lovers to find them all in one place.

After you have sampled curries from various stalls representing different countries, why not try some special Seafood Laksa Curry ice cream from the "Frugii" ice cream stall. If you like it, why not take a short stroll to their Lonsdale street store to also sample their Black Truffle icecream to celebrate the Truffle Festival - another festival currently running in Canberra.

The World Curry Festival will be along the City Walk in the CBD. Also nearby is the outdoor ice skating rink "Skate in the City" where you and the kids can work off some of that icecream. With temperatures in Canberra so close to freezing lately, you won't need any extra clothes to go ice skating!

So take your water, clear the calendar for the next day (just in case you need to!) and join the rest of Canberra in warming up at the World Curry Festival in the city.
