Global Fiesta is Council’s national Harmony Day event and is a celebration of our wonderful, culturally diverse community.

Join us for a day of free family fun and enjoy mouth-watering cultural cuisine, shop at the Koorie Night Market, dance to music from across the globe, watch exciting performances, play cultural games, visit the animal farm, check out community stalls and hop on the rides – just to name a few of the activities on offer. We also will have a special visit from Nick Jr’s Dora the Explorer and Go Diego Go!

The festivities will commence with a Smoking Ceremony performed by members of the Wurundjeri Tribe at midday.

Don't forget to collect your Global Fiesta passport from the Information stall on the day, as you go around the festival completing games and activities, and collecting stamps for your book.
