Parramasala 2014 promises to be a spicy mix of parade, parties, exotic bazaar, food stalls, music, dance, poetry, film, art, street performers and more. Immerse yourself in a celebration of the many rich and diverse cultures in Sydney’s own backyard, with many FREE events to enjoy.

On Friday 17 October from 6:30pm, join the colourful caravan of lights, costumes, drums and music as the Opening Night Parade weaves through the streets of Parramatta to Prince Alfred Park for a party featuring the funky fusion of hiphop artist L-FRESH and fireworks.

Spend the weekend wandering the exotic bazaar of the Masala Markets; ride a camel or chill out at the Chai Temple; fill your plate with spicy flavours from street hawkers and dance the night away at the Harris Park Bollywood Block Party. You can catch a flick at the South Asian film festival; indulge in an eclectic mix of dance, world music sounds, comedy, magicians and sufi poets or explore your inner artist at a family art workshop at Parramatta Artist Studios.
