Multicultural FestivalAccording to a survey on the 2016 Multicultural Festival in Canberra, the line-up of performers, food stalls, roving entertainment and give- aways was bigger and better than ever.

 

This year’s event attracted approximately 43,000 interstate and international visitors and brought a total contribution of $12 million to the local economy, this was up from 31,000 visitors and $7.8 million the previous year, ACT government reported in a media statement.

 

The statement further indicated that this year’s Spectator Survey indicates that 10,420 people stayed in paid accommodation during the festival spending over $2 million.

 

The survey determined that 97 per cent of people surveyed were more than likely to attend the event again next year and a whopping 99 per cent expressed that they would recommend the Festival to a friend.

 

Almost all that were surveyed were either satisfied or very satisfied with the event overall.

 

The planning has already started to bring Canberra the biggest festival yet in 2017.

 

Next year Canberra’s premier cultural event and the biggest weekend in town, the annual National Multicultural Festival, will be celebrating their 21st anniversary from 17-19 February 2017.
