Experience the tastes of the world

By Shepparton News

If you are a lover of delicious food from across the globe then you are in luck because the St Georges Rd Food Festival is returning for a sixth time on Sunday.

The festival is a celebration of the region’s multiculturalism with an array of authentic meals and treats home cooked by locals.

Prepare yourself for a taste of Afghani, Filipino, Greek, Iraqi, Indian, Malaysian, Nepalese, Sri Lankan, Spanish, Syrian and Vietnamese cultures made by locals from recipes passed down through the generations.

“Greater Shepparton is known for its multiculturalism and diverse communities, so it’s only fitting we celebrate this by allowing locals and visitors the chance to experience a taste of these cultures,” Greater Shepparton City Council's sustainable development director Geraldine Christou said.

Along with delicious food, people can enjoy multicultural dances, performances and cooking demonstrations accompanied by a performance from the Heard Instinct Collective, which was performing at the Land of Plenty music festival in Shepparton later this year.

Bring your families and friends down for a great day out celebrating the Greater Shepparton community.

“What you experience here is different to any other festival, the love for the food, culture and tradition is paramount,” Ms Christou said.

“Join us at the festival, enjoy the tastes of the world on a plate and experience the traditions of different cultures.”

St George’s Road Food Festival is on Sunday, from 11 am to 4 pm at St Georges Rd shopping precinct, Shepparton. Is is free to attend.
