Sunday, 20 March, 2016 at Benjafield Park, Moonah

Organisers of Moonah Taste of the World Festival are thrilled that this year will see the largest number of stallholders, the most diverse range of cuisine and the biggest line up of live music and performance since the event began.

Now in its’ sixth year, MToW provides a wonderful opportunity for the public to sample food from across the world including Bhutan, the Philippines, Ethiopia, Korea, Afghanistan, Italy, Liberia, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Sierra Leone, Thailand and India. Two stages will host bands and performers from equally diverse backgrounds with much loved music from popular bands, Son Del Sur, Tea House Trio and musicians from Continental Drift.

Chair of the Festival Committee, Ald. Christine Lucas said that the festival was an opportunity to acknowledge the diverse cultures living in Glenorchy.

‘We are so proud of this festival. It brings together the music, dance and food of so many different cultures. It is a wonderful opportunity to support and encourage a healthy multi-cultural community. It’s going to be great fun.’

As well as live music, dancing, performance and food, there are plenty of activities for the kids and adults, with cultural craft and art activities, grape crushing, face painting, games and cooking demonstrations.

Festivities run from 11am-4pm at Benjafield Park, Moonah, with live music throughout the day and more than 30 food stalls. A FREE shuttle bus will ferry visitors back and forth, between the Hopkins Street Moonah Car Park and Benjafield Park. Patrons are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair and please note that this is an alcohol and smoke free event.

Moonah Taste of the World is a project of Glenorchy City Council.
