Tantalise your tastebuds and warm up this winter as the World Curry Festival returns to Canberra.

Taking place along City Walk from Friday 8 July to Sunday 10 July, the World Curry Festival is a chance to get out of the house this winter and be immersed in the delights of an authentic culinary tour – all in the heart of Canberra’s CBD!

Following the success of the 2015 World Curry Festival, this year’s event will be bigger and better. Canberrans and visitors will be able to come down and be treated to a mix of cultures, aromas and spices in a large indoor heated marquee.

In The City Canberra chief executive Jane Easthope is thrilled to see the event return.

“The first World Curry Festival was incredibly popular last year, and we are so excited to be expanding the event to run over three days this year,” she says.

With stalls from India, Thailand, Laos and Ethiopia, as well as traditional sweets, beer and curried Gozleme, there’s sure to be a dish for even the most complex of palates.

The World Curry Festival draws foodies from far and wide and visitors to the festival will be treated to a smorgasbord of music, colour, fragrances, international beverages, cooking demonstrations and cultural performances.

If you think you have what it takes to be named ‘Canberra’s hottest citizen’, take part in the World Curry Festival chilli eating competition and win the ultimate prize – free curry for the entire festival!

This year’s World Curry Festival is happening in the midst of Canberra’s Winter Festival, right next to the open-air ice rink, real snow toboggan and giant inflatable slide.

Whether you’re a foodie or a figure skater, there’s an endless list of events and new experiences in the city worth getting out of the house for this winter.
