Baysie's multicultural community takes centre stage at free event
Mar 08 2023

Cultures from all around the globe will be on show at the City’s Evening in the Park Multicultural Celebration, from 5pm to 9pm on Saturday 18 March.

Families, friends and community groups need only to visit Broun Park in Embleton to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes from around the world as part of the City’s free event.

With almost half of the City’s population born overseas, the free family-friendly event is the perfect opportunity for locals to learn more about the culturally diverse community groups that call Baysie home.

The evening will feature performances representing countries such as Japan, India, China, Russia and beyond.

Event-goers will also be able to browse market stalls for international treasures, practise Tai Chi and learn Hebrew calligraphy, plus face painting will keep the little ones busy.

Spanish paella, Italian gelato and Japanese tempura dumplings are just some of the flavourful national dishes that will be available for purchase from onsite food trucks.

Event-goers are encouraged to bring picnic rugs and chairs. Walking or catching public transport to the event is also advised, and there will be limited parking will be available at Bayswater Waves.

This event is proudly supported by Western Australia Multicultural Association Inc.
