Coffs Harbour City Council’s
annual Multicultural Harmony Festival recognizes the principals of Harmony Day,
which celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity.
It’s about inclusiveness, respect and a sense
of belonging for everyone. Held annually in March, at the North Coast Regional
Botanic Garden, the Festival focuses on bringing the whole community together
to celebrate our cultural diversity and provides a vehicle to showcase the
skills and talents of our city's diverse cultural communities.
