Excitement is building for the much-anticipated return of the National Multicultural Festival from 17 to 19 February.
Minister for Multicultural Affairs Tara Cheyne said, “This summer we’ve seen the appetite Canberrans have for returning to the events they know and love and the buzz from the community around the festival is at an all-time high. With preparations in full swing, this 25th anniversary event is not to be missed.”
“The layout for this year’s festival has been carefully designed to minimise congestion around the stalls and stages, especially along City Walk. City Walk’s permanent plantings now make it an ideal place to relax and enjoy cooking demonstrations.
“We will have eight stages across the festival so no matter when you attend, or where you are, you’ll find a heap of entertainment, culture, food and fun. Beautiful Glebe Park is also part of the festival this year – a perfect place to sit and snack on your culinary delights, enjoy great cultural entertainment and participate in workshops. It’s also where the parade will end on Saturday afternoon!”
