Local performers, including dancers, singers and musicians, have been invited to take part in the city’s biggest community event after registrations opened for next year’s Marion Celebrates.

The biennial festival will highlight Marion’s cultural diversity with a stage show featuring multicultural song and dance, stalls for community groups and entertainment for kids.

It will be held on Sunday, 29 March at Warriparinga, off Sturt Road, Bedford Park under the banner Many Cultures- One Earth.

City of Marion’s cultural development officer Elizabeth Sykora said the festival was a unique opportunity for groups to showcase their talents.

“Marion Celebrates is a unique opportunity for local groups to promote their talents to the community at what will be an exciting and family-friendly event,” Ms Sykora said.
