The Mareeba Multicultural Festival on 31st August 2019 starts at 9.30am and runs until 5pm. There is a parade, followed by non-stop entertainment including Aboriginal, Torres Strait, PNG, Filipino, Italian, Spanish, Albanian, Greek, Polynesian and Australian performers. Food stalls and craft stalls from a range of cultures, and the perfect weather in Mareeba at this time of the year make this a day out not to be missed.
The Mareeba Shire is home to people from some 64 different nationalities and cultural backgrounds, who have lived in harmony for many years before “Multiculturalism” became popular. The festival highlights this diversity and harmony. Last year, the Multicultural Festival attracted around 6,000 people who enjoyed a day of entertainment, from more than 30 cultures, in perfect weather.
