    Multicultural Festival

    by Kate-Me Written Mar 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The day we were in Canberra (Feb 2005), we were lucky to catch the start of a 10 day multicultural festival, held in one of the main squares of the city.
    There was free entertainment by travelling acts and members of the region's multicultural community, a street parade featuring representatives from what must have been all of Canberra's different nationalities (quite a lot more than I would have dreamed!) and a huge area devoted to multicultural tents and caravans selling international food of just about all types and descriptions.
    The atmosphere was great, and the food very reasonably priced and varied.

    Floriade – Sept to Oct is a 30 day floral extravaganza held every year as Australia's Celebration of Spring. More than a million flowers almost bloom 'on cue' in Commonwealth Park, Canberra. Each year, the designers of Floriade adopt a different theme and in 2001, Floriade will celebrate the Centenary of Federation.

    Sunday Market - Each Sunday, a former Bus Depot is transformed into a bustling market atmosphere. There are beautifully made handcrafted and home produced items and great food and entertainment.
