South Australia is famous for its multicultural events and festivals. The Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) manages two major South Australian multicultural events.
The Governor’s Multicultural Awards
The Governor’s Multicultural Awards celebrate South Australians who promote multiculturalism and increase understanding of the benefits of cultural diversity in our community. Held annually, the awards are administered by Multicultural Affairs and presented by the Governor of South Australia on the advice of an independent judging panel.
The Multicultural Festival
The Multicultural Festival has been held every second year since 2013. The event offers a great day for celebrating cultural music, dance, heritage, arts and crafts, and culinary delights as community groups bring their culture to the big stage.
We also encourage and support the participation of multicultural community groups in the Christmas Pageant and Australia Day Parade.
Multicultural Events Calendar
Our Multicultural Events Calendar promotes community events that support and showcase our state’s cultural diversity. You can submit your event's details to our calendar.
