Multicultural Festival Could Move


The location for Canberra’s multicultural Festival could again be on the move.

The A.C.T. Government estimates about 350-thousand people attended the event at the weekend

but concerns have been raised about the Festival’s noise affecting nearby residents and the crowd size outgrowing the area’s capacity.

Twelve noise complaints were made over the course of the festival

Multicultural Affairs Minister Tara Cheyne did not rule out the festival needing to move in later years, saying its location would be a future decision of government taking into account the event’s size and location.

However,  she’s given her strongest indication yet that her preference is for the event to stay in the C.B.D.

Meantime the community’s being encouraged to offer feedback, ahead of next year’s planned event.
