The Multicultural Communities Council of South Australia will again this year be hosting our Harmony Picnic in the Square, Sunday 26th February 2017, between 11.30am – 3pm at Whitmore Square Adelaide.

It will be a day of free fun for families and friends to mingle and connect with people from other cultures in a very relaxed atmosphere.  Performing artists from Africa, Nepal, Kurdistan and Sri Lanka will entertain the audience with music and dance while free hot sizzling sausages will be cooked by members of Rotary South Adelaide. Kid’s entertainment will be free including bouncing castle; face painting, come try soccer, footy, basketball and netball.

The various cultures that now call Australia home bring with them different foods, ways of dressing, languages, customs and beliefs. “What we are aiming to do is celebrate these differences by embracing all the different cultures, making sure that everyone is given a fair go. Last year’s inaugural harmony picnic was a success and this year we are looking at building upon that success to host a harmonious multicultural gathering in the City of Adelaide that will continue to grow in fostering understanding and unity amongst our culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The idea is to uphold the recurring message of harmony Day which is ‘Everyone Belongs’. MCCSA’s Harmony picnic is all about community participation, inclusiveness, celebrating diversity, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.” said MCCSA’s CEO Helena Kyriazopoulos.

This colorful event will be attended by a host of dignitaries including his Excellency the Governor of South Australia, Hue Van Le, The Hon Zoe Bettison , Minister for Multicultural Affairs and South Australia’s diverse multicultural groups.
