Culture Galore is a multicultural festival that celebrates our city's diversity with food, arts and crafts, and music and dance performances from more than 30 cultures that call Christchurch home.

Each year stage performances range from Japanese drummers to colourful traditional dances and songs from Indonesia, Korea, Philippines, Poland, China, Fiji, Russia, Thailand, Mexico, Bangladesh and many more. 

As well as these amazing performances there is a huge range of have-a-go activities, such as stone carving, flax weaving, face painting, soft archery, bouncy castles, police speed radar, henna tattoos, fire evacuation challenge and more.
