Help celebrate Selwyn’s diversity at CultureFest

Thursday, June 29, 2017   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: event, culture

Selwyn District Council is inviting cultural and ethnic community groups to take part in this second annual celebration of diversity in Selwyn later this year.

CultureFest will showcase the district’s cultures with activities including stage performances, music, food, art and craft demonstrations, ethnic have-a-go sessions, sports and games. There will also be information stalls from agencies working for multicultural communities.

“CultureFest will be a great way to celebrate the contribution that so many groups make to Selwyn,” says Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett. “With a growing population comes increasing diversity and this event is all about welcoming people of different cultures, and building a community that’s more connected with the world, and with global opportunities.”

Date and Time: Sunday 1st October 2017, from 11am to 4pm
Location: Lincoln Event Centre and Domain (Meijer Drive, Lincoln)

This will predominantly be an outdoor event with a variety of performances, food, craft, agency, games, sport and recreation and more. We can pack even more into the day by using the Lincoln Event Centre!

Any groups or individuals interested in participating in CultureFest are invited to contact Dave Tippett (culturefest[at] or 03 347 2719). Applications for performers and stall holders must be received by Friday 4th August 2017.

CultureFest is organised by Selwyn District Council in partnership with Rotary Club of Lincoln, Christchurch Multicultural Council, and the Canterbury Migrant Centre.

CultureFest will be an annual event alternating between Rolleston and Lincoln.
