Eat, drink, laugh and dance your way around the world at the National Multicultural Festival. Celebrate difference, share traditions and see performances from all parts of the world throughout the festival. There will be live music, comedy, performance art, food and wine stalls, street parties and more!

Australian star Kate Ceberano headlines the festival on opening night supported by Andrea Kirwin and Band. Look out for South African a capella group Africa Entsha on Friday and Saturday. Australian acts include Sol Nation and Cumbiamuffin with their Colombian sounds. The festival also welcomes Sonik Waves, Miriam Lieberman, C Major, the Justin Yap Band and Titian Payne and the Big Island Express and a range of much loved local acts.

The 2017 Festival sees the return of multicultural comedy with top comedian Anh Do’s The Happiest Refugee and Joe Avati’s Show Us Your Roots showing at The Canberra Theatre.

The Multicultural Festival is also supporting the Canberra Food and Wine Expo which runs over the same three days so there’s definitely something for everyone.
