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.

Registration closed

We have now reached capacity and are no longer looking for organisations or groups to be part of Culture Galore.

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 Canterbury Cricket dive mat, flax weaving, face painting, soft archery, bouncy castles, police speed radar, fire evacuation challenge and kitchen fire demonstration.
