Cultural Bridges: Celebrating Four Decades of Pako Festa

Pako Festa is Victoria’s largest free multicultural street party celebrating Geelong’s diversity through community.

For over four decades, Pako Festa has attracted thousands of visitors, enriched the community and strengthened connections through food, performance and spectacle.

In partnership with Cultura, this exhibition will celebrate the spirit of Pako Festa through the objects and stories of Geelong’s multicultural communities. 

Visitors experience traditional decorative dress, carefully crafted heritage items and archival material, interspersed with memories and reflections.

The festival has mirrored significant shifts in recent history, remaining relevant to new audiences without excluding the founders.

It is due to the cultural bridges built by Pako Festa that Geelong has emerged as one of Australia’s fastest growing regional cities, attracting people with shared values to this vibrant and dynamic community.
