2021 Multicultural Festival

The Multicultural Festival is organised by Multicultural Affairs, Department of the Premier and Cabinet, and is the State Government’s flagship event for promoting and showcasing multiculturalism in South Australia.

The Multicultural Festival provides an opportunity for the wider community to experience and enjoy a diverse range of cultures and traditions, and includes community groups from new, emerging and established South Australian multicultural communities.

The Multicultural Festival embodies the concept of interculturalism, which describes a dynamic inclusion of and interaction between all cultures within the community, from which all of society benefits.

Held every second year since 2013, the Multicultural Festival features multiple stages, intercultural activities and stalls for community groups to showcase their cultural heritage through art, craft, food, dance, music and activities in a large-scale, positive and celebratory platform.

The 2021 Multicultural Festival is scheduled to be held on Sunday 14 November in Victoria Square/ Tarntanyangga, Adelaide.

Further announcements about the 2021 Multicultural Festival will be available here soon.

‘Come Together’ Multicultural Festival Grants to support eligible multicultural community groups to participate in the 2021 Multicultural Festival are now closed.
