Cultural stalls include traditional Polish egg painting, a storytelling session featuring the Book Of Belonging, Vietnamese and Chinese cooking workshops and making musical instruments from recycled materials with the Junkadelic Brass Band.

Festival goers can enjoy food and relax on beanbags while watching performances on the Galleria main stage.

President Suzana Russo said the event aimed to bring the multicultural community together.

“Morley is a proud community and we want to celebrate the character and vibrancy that make this community unique,” she said.

“We have received so much support from the local community groups and businesses who are eager to bring vibrancy to the Morley town centre, and are so grateful to our major sponsors the City of Bayswater, Galleria and Bendigo Bank.”
