South Australia is famous for its multicultural events and festivals. The Department of the Premier and Cabinet manages two major South Australian multicultural events.

Governor’s Multicultural Awards

The Governor’s Multicultural Awards recognise and celebrate South Australians who promote multiculturalism and increase the understanding of the benefits of cultural diversity in our community.

Held annually, the awards are administered by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet through Multicultural Affairs. They are presented by His Excellency, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia, on the advice of an independent judging panel.

Nominations for the 2019 Governor’s Multicultural Awards are now closed, with winners to be announced in due course.

2019 Multicultural Festival

The Multicultural Festival is a biennial, free, family friendly event offering a great day for celebrating cultural music, dance, heritage, arts and crafts, and culinary delights as community groups bring their culture to the big stage.

The 2019 Multicultural Festival was held on Sunday 10 November 2019, 11am – 5pm in Victoria Square/ Tarntanyangga, Adelaide.
