Multicultural kids will dance and promote their cultural background at the Sydney Children’s Festival at Pyrmont Park in Darling Harbour on Sunday, June 26, after an over-two year hiatus due to COVID-19.
The festival is now in its 22nd year after a highly successful history of entertaining communities throughout Sydney and providing a platform for talented and enthusiastic children to develop confidence and skill in the performing arts and to promote the culture of their parents and grandparents.
“Children of all cultural backgrounds are what this festival has been all about over many years and we welcome everyone to be part of this historic post-COVID festival,” Mr Thuat Nguyen, President of the Children’s Festival, said.
“I want to invite the families of Sydney to join hundreds of others to participate in this important celebration of youth and diversity right in the centre of Sydney on the beautiful harbour front at Pyrmont Bay Park.”
The festival will run from 11am until late afternoon with a full programme of on-stage presentations of traditional cultural dances and modern song and dance routines performed by kids of all ages.
There will be games and fun activities for all the children who come along. There is also a chance to participate in the competitions and display cultural costumes in the ever-popular costume parade.
The festival will be officially opened by the NSW Minister for Multiculturalism and Minister for Seniors, Mark Coure MP.
