The Victorian Multicultural Commission has postponed its Cultural Diversity Week events due to advice on gatherings of more than 500 people in response to COVID-19. Victoria’s Multicultural Festival, which was scheduled for 29 March 2020, will be postponed to later in the year.
Every year, the citizens of Melbourne celebrate a number of multicultural festivals around the city; including the ever-popular Chinese New Year, the Summer Latin Festival and Victoria’s Multicultural Festival.
