Mareeba Multicultural Festival

30/08/2014

The Mareeba Multicultural Festival starts at 10 am with a parade, followed by non-stop entertainment including Aboriginal, Torres Strait, PNG, Filipino, Italian, Spanish, Albanian, Greek, Polynesian and Australian performers. Food stalls and craft stalls from a range of cultures, and the perfect weather in Mareeba at this time of the year, make this a day out not to be missed.

The program ends at 5pm. Admission is free with a range of donated prizes drawn throughout the day. Winners must be present at the time of the draw. This is a chance for visitors to attend a major local community event. The Mareeba Shire is home to people from some 64 different nationalities and cultural backgrounds, who have lived in harmony for many years before “Multiculturalism” became popular. The festival highlights this diversity and harmony.

Last year, the Multicultural Festival attracted around 6,000 people who enjoyed a day of entertainment, from more than 30 cultures, in perfect weather. To potential participants: The Mareeba Multicultural Festival showcases local regional performers who volunteer their time and their skills to celebrate their cultural backgrounds. The focus of the festival is to benefit the local region and so stallholders consist only of non-commercial, not-for-profit local cultural and service groups. The Mareeba Multicultural Festival is a not-for-profit event relying on donations from local and regional businesses and on government funding. We welcome any individuals or groups from the Tablelands Regional Council or wider region wishing to perform or set up a stall.
