Sights, sounds and tastes from across the world will come to Orange on Saturday 26 March for Harmony Day celebrations.

DIVERSITY: High energy Bhangra dance will feature at Harmony Day celebrations on Saturday 26 March.

Special guest performers will be Laddu and the Bhangra Dancers, Fattisha Kamara performing her high-energy Brazilian Samba, Indian singers and dancers, as well as music and entertainment by local artists and free children’s activities.

Orange City Council Community Services Policy Committee Chair Cr Mel McDonell encouraged everyone to come along with friends and family to celebrate our diversity.
“Harmony Day brings people from all cultures and communities together in a celebration of inclusiveness, respect and belonging for everyone,” Cr McDonell said.
“It is a wonderful opportunity to share our cultural heritage, learn about others and take pride in in our multicultural society. In light of recent global events, coming together as a community is more important than ever.”
The annual celebration of our cultural diversity is being held to coincide with national Harmony Week, which is being held from March 21 to 27, 2022.
