The colours of Canberra’s Multicultural Festival


Now in its 21st year, the Multicultural Festival of Canberra is a celebration of the nation of the worlds, and a feast of culture, costumes, and colour.  A veritable kaleidoscope of colour,

including much red.

There is lots of dancing to watch with styles from all over the globe

some of it quite energetic


and stalls, and flags, and people,


and naturally facilities for the people,


and of course dragons.

There is music too, lots of it, because what is a festival without music?

And then there is the food and a chance to sample fare from all corners of the world. Some of it delicious and nutritious, some of it perhaps not quite so good for you.

And I caught just a tiny snippet of the festival,

I’ll sure it will be back again next year.

Hi. I'm Christine. Writer, traveller, mother, grandmother, wife, friend, foodie and lover of life - embarking on life after working, taking notes and photos along the way. Booming marvellous. I live in fabulous Canberra and am a proud grandma (we prefer ' Marsie') to a growing tribe. I've written for years in different ways and now, as a recent retiree with more time to travel and embrace living, I'm keen to share those adventures. This is a pretty amazing planet we live on, and my aim is to see and do as much as I can, be involved and open to new adventures and experiences, and inspire others to do the same. BoomingOn is my way to share this and connect with others who are doing the same. I write about travelling, my home town, arts and entertainment, kids and family, and getting older and retirement. The fun things and sometimes the serious things. I keep it real, and try to make it fun. Life's too short not to have a giggle. I'd love to share adventures with you and hope you'll join the ride.

  1. Glad to see so many toilets! I always need the toilet which often puts me off big events. I didn’t go to the festival this year. We had a birthday party at the south coast instead. Glad to see it was as colourful as always and that “multi cultural” includes chips on a stick! LOL
