MESSAGE FROM JOSEPH LA POSTA
Chief Executive Officer Multicultural NSW
...This festival, now in its 25th year, is remarkable for bringing children from different ancestries together to celebrate the cultural diversity of New South Wales and contributes to fostering understanding and community harmony from an early age. Most importantly, it gives youngsters taking part a chance to laugh together and have fun while learning from each other about their heritage and traditions.
