Global Village Multicultural Festival

Australia is one of the most democratic countries in the world. It is a multicultural and multilingual country, with more than 70 nationalities.

Global Village Multicultural Festival was born when two Melbourne-based enthusiasts decided to broaden their keen charity work and involvement in cultural events beyond the Macedonian community. The idea was to create a community-based event that would bring together a diverse range of cultures in a positive, engaging and entertaining format.

Global Village Festival offers:

– Organization, advertising and promotion of different kinds of multiculturalism
– An opportunity and possibility for participation in Global Village Festival, regardless of the age, sex and religious belief
– An opportunity for participation in folk festival, various sport competitions, plays and films, food and trades

For the first time in Australia, the Global Village Multicultural Festival will take place on 24 & 25 October 2015, with the aim to unite people of varying cultural backgrounds in an enjoyable event.
