Inaugural Macarthur Multicultural Children’s Festival A Big Hit With Kids

Campbelltown’s iconic Koshigaya Park transformed into an ideal kid’s kingdom during the weekend with the inauguration of the Macarthur Multicultural Children’s Festival. From Scottish sword dancing to Maori Hakka to the Punjabi Bhangra and Columbian  salsa, the centre stage exploded in a riot of cultural colour. Mermaids, hula dancers, henna tattoos – you name it and they had it!

The first-of-its-kind festival aimed at celebrating twenty years of cultural diversity among children across Sydney was hosted by the Children ‘s Festival Organisation. Speaking about the event, festival director Brian Laul said: “The festival has opened up connection and dialogue between people of different cultures that make up Macarthur’s social fabric.”

Over 350 children from 40 different community groups performed on stage and marched in the grand parade through the park, proudly displaying their culture through activity stalls as thousands from south-west Sydney flocked in to witness their glory.

Also present at the event was, Mr Greg Warren MP, State Member for Campbelltown, who said: “This festival provides opportunities for children and adults to join in many exciting activities that go a long way towards garnering harmony within all our communities.”
