Have you ever been curious about Indonesian culture? The 2nd Warisan Budaya Indonesian Festival on Saturday, 20 May, at Palmerston, NT might be the event for you. Warisan Budaya means “cultural heritage” in Indonesian, and the festival will be celebrating the vibrant Indonesian culture with an exciting programme featuring dances, music, and Indonesian cuisine.
The City of Palmerstone in the Northern Territory is currently the fastest growing city in the Northern Territory. At the 2011 Census, the City of Palmerston had a population of approximately 27,618 people with the ABS predicting the population will reach between 36,600 and 42,000 people by 2021 (http://www.censusdata.abs.gov.au/census_services/getproduct/census/2011/quickstat/70104?opendocument&navpos=220)
This growth will bring with it a greater mix of cultural diversity to Palmerston, with the city already home to people from Filipino, Greek, Vietnamese, Thai and Indonesian backgrounds and 24.3% of the Palmerston population born outside of Australia.
We love the display of diversity, culture and heritage that the Warisan Budaya Indonesian Festival brings to the area. To check it out visit, http://www.palmerston.nt.gov.au/council/latest-news/2017/warisan-budaya-indonesian-festival
