It's time to put the return of Riverlights Multicultural Festival in your calendar.
From 3pm to 9pm on October 12, the Maitland City Council event will be at The Levee Central Maitland.
All are welcome to join in the festivities and celebrate the city's diversity.
Here are some of the reasons to keep this event on your radar for the next few of months.
This is a great opportunity to get involved and be a little creative. Attendees can make their own paper lanterns for the flotilla during the Riverlights Festival.
Here's your chance to sit back, relax, and learn in the Riverlights Language Lounge. Visitors can learn to count in a range of languages, from Polish to Sudanese and in all kinds of others in between.
Want to learn more about other cultures? You've come to the right place. There will be a variety of demonstrations including songs, dances and performances.
Add a little adventure to your Riverlights experience with the Cultural Passport. Collect stamps as you travel around the Riverlights Cultural Village to show where you've been.
No event is complete without a selection of great food and the Riverlights Festival has it in spades. International flavours will be on display during cooking demonstrations.
Hunter residents won't have to travel far to get a taste of cultures from across the globe. There will be colourful displays of different cultures in the cultural villages, each one featuring food tasting, craft, and activities from a variety of nations.
