About Parramasala Festival
Since 2010, Parramasala has evolved into a free public celebration of the diverse and rich cultures in Sydney’s west - a heady and colourful mix of music, dance, parade, theatre, food, film and heritage.
Parramasala attracts around 30,000 people of which over 70% were born in countries other than Australia. More than 30 nationalities and cultures have been represented by the festival.
Parramasala has now moved its dates to be part of Multicultural March 2017 and will be held Friday 10 March, Saturday 11 March and Sunday 12 March 2017.
The event will again be held in Parramatta’s Prince Alfred Square, in the Riverside Theatres and 2017 will see it spread to the Parramatta Riverbanks.
Parramasala will continue to offer free entertainment, markets, music, visual arts and a party atmosphere – giving the whole family the opportunity to experience the many diverse cultures of Sydney and to explore facets of life in Western Sydney.
Western Sydney is home to Australia’s most culturally diverse population and is the ideal area to host an event which brings together so many cultures in a positive, inclusive and friendly atmosphere.
