Join us for this special one-day celebration of Victoria's Turkish community.
This festival was the place to try traditional Turkish foods, meet the community and have a go at belly dancing! Or just sit back and enjoy music and dance performances, craft demonstrations and children's activities.
The day also launched the exhibition We came as workers, We stayed as citizens, marking the 40th anniversary of the formal migration agreement between Turkey and Australia, which has seen the community in Victoria grow to an estimated 27,500 people.
