The Bendigo Festival of Cultures brings together Victoria’s diverse ethnic, cultural and religious communities through joint projects during a week-long celebration of diversity.

We invite vendors and business to join us during the festival.

This is a unique opportunity for businesses, charities, organisations and individuals to touch base with thousands of like-minded people. The expected attendance for this year’s event is in excess of 3000 including local residents, local business owners and a large number of visitors from Melbourne and regional Victoria.
