The Auburn Festival is a celebration of the rich, vibrant and diverse culture of the local and surrounding region and our cultural performances, activities, food and stalls aim to represent and showcase all of those cultures and our wonderful community.
Everyone is invited to bring a rug, claim your place on the grass and enjoy the unique, vibrant, cultural entertainment all day.
There will be a huge array of amazing talent representing all corners of the globe on the two main stages and much more throughout the site.
Marvel at the Middle Eastern sounds of Arabian Nights, move to the West African rhythms of Keyim Ba, be captivated by the traditional Kurdish music from Persian Fusion, witness the spectacle of Mongolian throat singing by Bukhu and be enchanted by the Rhythms of Peace Ensemble. The world is indeed on stage at the Auburn Festival!
The KidZone entertainment area also boasts a huge range of much loved kid's performances and activities taking place throughout the whole day. Our special guest in the 'KidZone' this year is everyone's favourite character 'Dora the Explorer'.
Amusement rides, roving entertainers, an animal farm and pony rides, interactive workshops in circus skills, 'reverse garbage' craft and lantern making will make it a day for the whole family to enjoy.
An amazing display of African drumming and dancing will not only be performed by Lucky African Dance, but you will also get the chance to try it out yourself at the African Drumming workshops on throughout the day.
Of course there are also many art, fashion, market and community stalls showcasing a wide variety of traditional goods and gifts from a range of cultures, as well as a huge range of food stalls presenting the best in international cuisine.
For the first year, the Festival will also hold an 'Outdoor Activity Zone' with everything from Turkish Oil Wrestling to Martial Arts demonstrations to 'Flyball' dog racing. It's sure to add an extra element of excitement to the day so be sure to check it out.
