Multicultural South Australia
South Australia is home to people from more than 200 countries, and about 230,000 South Australians speak languages other than English at home.
The Multicultural Festival is a great opportunity to experience and celebrate the state's cultural diversity and get to meet some of our newest migrant communities.
The Multicultural Festival is brought to you by the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion in partnership with the Rundle Mall Management Authority and with the help of many community organisations and volunteers.
