Global Grooves

SAVE THE DATE:  23 October 2021

Held in October each year, Mackay’s largest multicultural event lets locals travel the world in a single day.

Running from 3pm to 8pm, the festival features an amazing array of performers, bands and dance groups. On show will be an amazing range of music and traditional dances and costumes from local and international performers.

There will also be more than a dozen food vendors with delicacies from across the world. From Italian and Maltese to Filipino, Pacific Islands, Dutch, Thai and Indian – there will be plenty on offer to tantalise your tastebuds.

Add to that a workshop teepee with activities to enthral children and adults – you can learn to drum or create a cultural mask or artwork – and you have something for everyone.

Applications for food vendors, market stallholders and performers are now open. You can find Global Grooves Application Forms here.

Global Grooves is an initiative of Mackay Regional Council and the MECC and is proudly supported by the Queensland Government and ABC Tropical North.
