Project status: In Progress


How you had YourSay:

Thanks for sharing your feedback and ideas. Submissions are now closed for feedback on the National Multicultural Festival.

During the engagement we received comments on our online interactive map and online survey.

We are looking at:

The National Multicultural Festival has evolved over twenty years. Now a major event attracting thousands of locals as well as domestic and international visitors, the Festival showcases Australia's cultural diversity and promotes social inclusion. The free event includes shows, food stalls, dancing and celebrations over three days right in the heart of Canberra.

We asked for your feedback and experiences to help identify what you love and where we need to improve. Your insights will help us identify:

  • Continuous improvements for future festivals
  • Practical challenges for attendees, stallholders and other participants
  • What we collectively love about the Festival

Your views are being used to:

Inform an external review of the National Multicultural Festival which is currently underway. Your survey feedback will inform the final report which will be released in August 2018.
