RIVERLAND MULTICULTURAL FESTIVAL
Celebrating 100 years of Cultural Diversity!
As part of the Berri Centenary Year and to acknowledge and celebrate that the Riverland is 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.
Festival Chairperson, Rosalyn Kambouris, invites everyone to the free event, to celebrate our community and cultures.
Rosalyn explains ‘A community committee has been planning the Festival over the past twelve months.
"There is something for everyone. Be treated to a day of performances, dance and song 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.
"We thank Festivals Australia for funding to support ‘Sufi Soul’s performance", said Ms Kambouris.
"Riverland Youth Theatre will be supporting the event by hosting an activity tent. Come along and create something special for the parade or maybe you’d like an innovative face paint."
The Riverland community are invited to join in the fun and be part of the Festival parade as it weaves along the riverfront into the festival venue.
An exhibition tent will exhibit multicultural memorabilia and art displays.
The venue will offer a vibrant market place of quality handmade products. Treat your tastebuds to a selection of traditional food . The day offers something for everyone.’
For further information or if you would like to be involved in the day, the committee are currently seeking applications for food stall holder, art / craft stalls and buskers. Or perhaps you would like to volunteer.
