Parramasala: Celebrating International Arts and Culture

“Parramasala 2014 was a spicy mix of parade, parties, exotic bazaar, food stalls, music, dance, poetry, film, art, street performers and much more. Now in its fifth year we are delighted to have once again brought Parramasala to Western Sydney.

I would like to thank the various communities of Western Sydney for participating and engaging in an international contemporary arts festival that celebrates the global impact of multicultural arts and cultures. This event would not have been possible without our major partners and sponsors, including Destination NSW, Parramatta City Council and Orb Global Investments. Thank you to over 1000 parade participants and performers from 30 nationalities and cultures. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year and making this an ongoing success with your support.” Dr G.K (Harry) Harinath, MBBS, DTM&H (OAM), Chairman, Parramasala

The colourful caravan of lights, costumes, drums and music from the Opening Night Parade weaved through the streets of Church Street to Prince Alfred Park for a party featuring the funky fusion of hiphop artist L-FRESH and fireworks.

The exotic bazaar of the Masala Markets; the chill out at the Chai Temple; the spicy aromas from street hawkers and the Harris Park Bollywood Block Party kept the festival patrons coming back for more…

Parramasala wouldn’t be possible without the huge contribution of our dedicated volunteers, thank you to Eventeamwork.
