International Day celebrates Canberra’s multicultural community

3 February, 2016

4 rings with brightly coloured glass stones and enamel at the Old Bus Depot Markets for International DayCanberra is such a rich and diverse multicultural community, and at our February theme day at the markets, International Day, we really like to show off the best bits with everything from music and dance, to handcrafted gifts and delicious food.

International Day takes place on Sunday 21 February where you can ‘travel the world’ within the market surrounds, exploring the many cultures which call the nation’s capital home. Taste international cuisines, be entertained by local ethnic music and dance groups performing traditional dances, and buy gifts handcrafted in faraway lands.  You can browse and buy Indian block print textiles, Turkish towels and Ottoman style jewellery, Pakistani block printed handmade paper and table mats, French provincial homewares, Japanese kimonos and homewares and handcrafted jade sculptures.

This year’s diverse entertainment includes Apsaras Arts Indian Dance Group, Argentine Tango, Rondalla Filipino String Ensemble and Drum Assault. So come and celebrate all that’s great at International Day.
