You can also check out the Festival Review that was announced 20 August 2018 and made recommendations for future Festivals.

What we looked 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 helped us identify:

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

How we used your views:

Your feedback helped inform an external review of the National Multicultural Festival. The Review and supporting documents were announced on Monday 20 August 2018.
