Experience and celebrate South Australia’s cultural diversity, with Multicultural Festival returning to Adelaide this November.

Finding its home in the vibrant Tarntanyangga/Victoria Square precinct, the city will transform into a hub of song, dance, arts and culinary delights for one-night-only on Sunday, November 14.

The free community event will showcase over 50 cultures and feature 70 community groups in South Australia, bringing the state’s cultural diversity to the big stage.

Listen to the stories and learn about the history and tradition of SA’s multicultural landscape at the festival, with an array of interactive activities, stalls and live performances throughout the day.

From South America to Asia, Africa and more, the immersive Multicultural Festival lets Adelaidians experience the rich culture woven into the state’s fabric.

Tickle your tastebuds with an array of international cuisines on offer throughout the day, from delicious Mexican to Croatian and Turkish.  

The festivities will kick off at 11am on Sunday, with the fun continuing until 5pm. The festival is an accessible event, with wheelchair access available via the main entrance on the Reconciliation Plaza.

This is the first time the Multicultural Festival has returned to the city since 2019, with the pandemic pausing the energetic celebration last year. Over 7000 South Australian’s attended the festival in its inaugural year.

While the final details of this year’s Multicultural Festival haven’t been revealed, the 2019 program gives the anticipated Adelaide public a sneak peek at what to expect with an array of exciting and free activities on offer.

Individuals learnt the craft of making a traditional Chinese lantern, fan or bracelet with the Adelaide Chinese Dance Academy or try traditional games and saree tying with the Adelaide Tamil Association.

 Dancing the afternoon away, both the Bangladeshi Community Association and Zimbabwe Community of SA Dance hosted traditional dancing workshops at the inaugural festival as well.

Presented in collaboration with the State Government, the immersive event and vibrancy of the Multicultural Festival is excitedly returning Tarntanyangga/Victoria Square on November 14.
