Big Day Out in Harmony this year will be held from 12-4.30pm on 4 June 2022 at the Council lawns on Todd St. Come and join us for a fantastic celebration of the many cultures in Alice Springs! There will be dance, performances, and food, as well as a range of activities for both kids and adults alike to enjoy!
This year we will also have a special performance from Ajak Kwai, Australia’s renowned songwoman of contemporary South Sudanese music! We hope to see you for Alice Springs‘ biggest multicultural event of the year.
Celebrating the vibrancy of our town with community events like Harmony Day is an important part of MCSCA work, ensuring that Alice Springs is a welcoming place for all.
Harmony Day is a United Nations-recognised global celebration that began in 1999. Officially held on March 21, it coincides with the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and has been enthusiastically embraced by MCSCA as a community celebration in Alice Springs in early May. We call this event Big Day Out in Harmony.
Each year, MCSCA invites all the multicultural groups and associations to participate in the event, to share some of their culture with the wider community. After months of rehearsals, it comes together on a day filled with colours, sounds, fragrances and tastes from across the world.
The event is proudly supported by the Northern Territory Government and Alice Springs Town Council.
