Zinda festival is all about multicultural music, food and art in the heart of Bendigo. Zinda celebrates our region’s growing diversity – the cultures that increasingly contribute to the vibrancy of our community. While the festival began over 10 years ago, 2 years ago we launched it with the new name of Zinda Festival and an exciting new global outlook. Zinda means alive and lively in a number of languages – Dari, Bengali, Farsi, Hindi, Hazaraghi and Urdu. It is therefore a truly multicultural name for our multicultural festival.
Zinda Festival is Bendigo’s multicultural festival (presented by Loddon Campaspe Multicultural Services) that celebrates music, dance, food and cultures that contribute to the vibrancy of regional Victoria. Zinda Festival will be held on 26 March 2022 at Rosiland Park Bendigo and will kick off Cultural Diversity Week.
