Global flavours hit the town

THE Moonah Taste of the World Festival is gearing up for its 10th anniversary on Sunday 22 March at Benajfield Park.

This year, organisers are excited to bring fresh new additions into the mix along with plenty of festival favourites.

There will be musical acts on the main stage, pop-up performances, cooking demonstrations, children’s activities and more than 30 food stalls bringing flavours from many corners of the world to Moonah.

This milestone birthday brings together talented local musicians Amoko (Lawrence Gino) and Wishmitha Sachinthana with afro-beat big band Baba Bruja to create new music, and the Kiwi community to share Haka with festival goers for the first time.

Another new addition this year will be pop-up performances from Irish session musicians to Indian folk dances, along with many old favourites, including the Greek Helenic Dancers and Tai Chi demonstrations.

The festival provides opportunities for local communities to share the diverse flavours and cultures of their homelands.

Glenorchy City Council provides support, training and equipment to enable communities who otherwise may not have been able to participate, and it is hoped this experience enables people to attend other festivals and events or even to set up their own business.

If you haven’t experienced the festival before, get on down to Benajfield Park on Sunday 22 March and experience wonderful food, music and activities from around the globe.

The event will run from 11am to 4pm and be sure to check next month’s edition for a full program line-up.
