Event description

Description

Pako Festa is Australia's largest free multi-cultural event, held annually in Geelong West's iconic Pakington Street. From its humble beginnings 37 years ago the event continues to make a significant contribution to the region and State through its celebration of ethnic diversity, acceptance and harmony. The 2019 event attracted over 100,000 spectators and involved approximately 5,000 participants from 39 diverse communities.

As a proud sponsor of Pako Festa, Deakin will participate in the parade and we invite you to join us!

This year's theme, Elements of Culture, focuses on cultural food, traditional costumes and folkloric dance and music.

We are looking for Deakin students, staff and alumni to march in the parade.

To celebrate the diversity of our community, you are encouraged to wear traditional cultural dress. Alternatively we will provide you with a graduation gown or Deakin t-shirt.

If you are interested in participating, please register your details by Friday, 21 February 2019. Participants will receive a free food voucher to enjoy at one of the many food stalls.

There are only 50 positions available so get in quick!

All parade participants must have the physical stamina and wellbeing to partake in the entire parade route – approximately 1 hour.
