The Festival of Cultures is a week-long celebration of Bendigo’s thriving multicultural community, and is the region’s premier multicultural event. The Festival is an initiative of Loddon Campaspe Multicultural Services, and has been a yearly celebration since 2001.

In 2017 we are celebrating our progress in acknowledging that Diversity is Mainstream:  Bendigo is a wonderful place to live and the diverse cultures that have been sewn into the fabric of our society is part of what makes Bendigo special.  We aim to make the 2017 our biggest and most successful festival ever, with a dazzling line up of performances, art, food, forums, markets, and exhibitions, culminating in an all-ages concert outside the Town Hall.

The Festival is made possible with the support of the Department of Premier and Cabinet, the City of Greater Bendigo and contributions from our wonderful local community.
