Celebrating rich cultural diversity
The Moonah Taste of the World Festival is a unique, annual multicultural event celebrating the rich cultural diversity of the Glenorchy municipality. Festival highlights include authentic culinary delights from around the world, extraordinary world music and dance performers, featuring a stunning range of colourful costumes and a showcase of arts and culture.
This is a full program of activities on one day at Benjafield Park in Moonah, that has three major components:
Taste of the World – an exciting mix of community and commercial food stalls. Multicultural communities are able to share the unique tastes of their homeland with the broader community and celebrate their heritage. Local businesses have the opportunity to share their produce and promote dining destinations within Glenorchy.
World Entertainment – an entertainment program across two stages which incorporates a number of unique cultural performances from local, interstate and national musicians and dance groups. Audiences have the opportunity to experience and participate through an ecclectic range of performances and workshops.
A showcase of cultural diversity at its best – an opportunity to showcase the cultures of Southern Tasmania’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities and celebrate the skills of community members through hands-on demonstrations, displays, crafts and cultural activities.
