The National Multicultural Festival is one of the nation’s largest and most important celebrations of cultural diversity that attracts hundreds of thousands to Canberra for music, dance and food.

For more than 20 years, the Festival has drawn performers and participants from across the Canberran region and the globe. They come together to bring to life a cross-cultural experience that is truly one of a kind.

The 2020 Festival in Canberra's City Centre will be a hub of cultural entertainment. With a variety of engaging performances running through the day and well into the evening.

A jam-packed program across 6 stages and 2 platforms will surely keep you singing and dancing for the whole festival!

The 2020 festival will feature a smorgasbord of local and international entertainers. This year we have sought out a unique list of acts from across the cultural landscape covering Europe, Germany, Mexico, Pakistan, Bangladesh and the South Pacific.
