Labour Weekend, Friday 4 - Monday 7 October, 2013!
Parramasala is an international contemporary arts festival that celebrates the global impact of the arts and cultures of Western Sydney’s communities. The city of Parramatta is home to vibrant arts and entertainment including music, dance, theatre, comedy, film, markets and visual arts from around the world and Parramasala captures this wealth and folds it into a unique cultural event.
From the very contemporary to the sublimely classical, the festival program offers music, theatre, dance, film screenings, workshops and talks that inspire and entertain. The Masala Markets transform Prince Alfred Park into a South Asian-style bazaar, and the Chai Temple offers the perfect place to relax and enjoy the free program of music and dance on the Outdoor Stage.
