Greater Shepparton’s biggest multicultural festival returns alongside the new look Shepparton Festival celebrating its 25th year this winter.
Cultural diversity will be on show for Converge on the Goulburn on Saturday 12 June at the new location of the Shepparton Showgrounds.
Converge is more than just a festival, it brings together food, culture and performances from Greater Shepparton’s Aboriginal and multicultural communities in celebrating the richness of our community.
Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor Councillor Kim O’Keeffe said Converge would be part of the opening weekend of the Shepparton Festival.
“Council and the Shepparton Festival have a long standing relationship and it is exciting to see the Converge festival be part of the opening weekend once again,” Cr O’Keeffe said.
“The entire community is invited to come down to the Showgrounds and take part in the festivities, it’s the perfect way for you and your family to learn more about and experience the values, rituals and traditions of the many cultures that call Greater Shepparton home.”
Residents have the chance to participate in interactive arts and cultural workshops and activities, or enjoy a feast of flavoursome cuisine cooked by some of our many local communities, food trucks and local businesses.
“There will definitely be something for everyone at Converge on the Goulburn and the Showgrounds will allow for an enjoyable and COVID safe experience,” Cr O’Keeffe said.
Those attending Converge on the Goulburn will need to check in on entry via a QR code and keep 1.5m distancing.
