SUMMERTIME - FESTIVALS, FOOD AND BLOCKBUSTERS

Local festivals and events bring communities and conference delegates together to celebrate the distinctive features of a destination. Boost attendance at your event by offering unique social networking opportunities for your delegates.

Food is the great connector that brings people together. And Canberra knows how to mix Dining + Social with artisan food producers, creative restaurateurs, baristas and craft beer brewers putting the capital firmly on the culinary map. The Commons Street Feast is our newest outdoor foodie Festival while the Night Noodle Markets are the perfect backdrop to Enlighten, an architectural light show that illuminates the city’s national attractions and iconic buildings. The colourful National Multicultural Festival celebrates cultural diversity through food, music and dance.
