This weekend, warm up your winter blues and enjoy some exotic foodie flavours as the World Curry Festival returns to Canberra.
Back for its third year from Friday 7 July to Sunday 9 July, 11 am – 8 pm, the festival sprawls along City Walk with 30 stalls that are sure to tantalise your taste buds offering curries and delights from all over the world including India, Laos, Thailand, Sri Lanka and the Philippines.
Following the success of the 2016 World Curry Festival, this year’s event will be bigger and better. Canberrans and visitors are invited to join in the celebration of “all things curry” where culture, aroma and spices can be enjoyed under the comfort of a large heated marquee.
CEO of In The City Canberra Jane Easthope is ecstatic to see the World Curry Festival return to the city.
“The last two years of the World Curry Festival have been incredibly popular, we can’t wait to have the festival back in our city bigger than before for the third year running,” says Jane.
“At the end of the year, events such as these will become the responsibility of the City Renewal Authority. Join us in celebrating the tradition of the World Curry Festival as a fantastic part of our events calendar.”
To complement the variety of exotic dishes, attendees will also be entertained by traditional Indian dancers, music, cooking demonstrations and Canberra’s hottest chilli eating competition – all under the backdrop of the city’s sensational ‘Skating At’ Garema Place open-air ice skating rink.
Whether it’s ice or spice that takes your fancy, there’s an endless list of events and new experiences in the city worth getting out of the house for this winter.
