The Kaleidoscope of colour that is the National Multicultural Festival will return in 2023, with Glebe Park set to join the City as hosts of the event for its 25-year anniversary.

The festival will run from the 17th to the 19th of February, with an expanded footprint, allowing for more stalls and exotic performances to be part of the three-day event.

Multicultural Affairs Minister, Tara Cheyne, said she’s excited for its return, following a 2-year hiatus due to COVID.

“Canberra is a proudly multicultural and inclusive city, and the National Multicultural Festival is the embodiment of this – a three-day event where multicultural communities showcase and share their culture, history and heritage through food, art, song and dance.”

Multicultural groups in the ACT and surrounding areas will now begin planning stalls, workshops and performances ahead of the event in February.
