The land, people and culture of Viet Nam were introduced at the 20th National Multicultural Festival which took place in Australia’s capital city of Canberra from February 12-14.
With various cultural publications, souvenirs and traditional dishes like “nem ran” (fried spring roll), “pho bo” (beef noodle soup) and Vietnamese-style sandwiches, the Vietnamese booth attracted a large crowd of visitors.
This is the second time the Vietnamese Embassy in Australia has participated in the festival.
As one of Australia’s largest annual cultural events, the National Multicultural Festival aims to unite the community and encourage the harmony between nations and cultures.
Apart from 463 booths of over 800 organisations, foreign embassies and community groups, the festival also accommodated eight stages which saw the performances of over 350 artists.
More than 270,000 visitors flocked to the three-day event.
