Newcastle China Week

 It's great to celebrate your heritage right where you live ... 

Newcastle China week 2019 showcased  a 2-day program consisting of a Wine and Tourism Business Forum on Friday 6th September and a free Cultural Festival on Saturday 7th September.

The Cultural Festival took place in the beautiful bush campus in Callaghan at the University of Newcastle, only about five minutes from where I live. 

It's a  celebration of  the contemporary and traditional Chinese culture, food, art, lion and dragon dances with interactive displays, food markets, wine tasting and demonstrations. The food offerings were many and varied from traditional Chinese snacks to all sorts of Asian and fusion inspired treats, as well as ubiquitous festival food like fairy floss! 

The Festival aims to celebrate cultural diversity and inclusiveness while offering a fun-filled day to engage with students and welcome the community to the campus.
