Celebrating 100 years of cultural diversity
As part of the Berri Centenary Year acknowledging and celebrating the Riverland as one of the most culturally diverse regional communities in Australia, the Riverland Multicultural Festival is to be held on the picturesque Berri Riverfront on November 5, 2011, commencing at 11am.
Festival Chairperson, Rosalyn Kambouris, invites everyone to the free event, to celebrate our community and cultures.
Rosalyn explains ‘There is something for everyone. Be treated to a day of performances, dance and song, come and try activities and workshops, reflecting our community through its rich cultural diversity.
Be energised by the sounds of music and song from Sufi Soul, a fusion of North Indian, Middle Eastern and Afghan music. Through their workshop discover the origins of both traditional and contemporary music and song from North India, Middle East and Afghanistan.
Riverland Youth Theatre will be supporting the event by hosting an activity tent. Come along and create something special for the parade, create an artwork or a musical instrument for the parade or maybe you’d like an innovative face paint.
Free workshops include lino print, Indigenous feather flowers, weaving and carving.
Demonstrations and performances include the energetic Soul Capoeira with their amazing art form that combines elements of martial arts, sports and music.
And of course there is no party without the fabulous Riverland Sikh Bhangra Dance troupe!
Everyone is invited to join in the fun and be part of the Festival parade as it weaves along the riverfront into the festival venue stepping off at 3pm.
An exhibition tent will exhibit multicultural memorabilia, photographs and art displays.
The venue will offer a vibrant market place of quality handmade products. Treat your tastebuds to a selection of traditional food.
Don’t forget to bring your musical instrument and join in the final performance for the evening at 7pm – the all star jam.
The day offers something for everyone.’
