Don’t Miss It!
It’s coming soon. The first of its kind ever in New Zealand – the ASEAN Festival 2012 Event in Auckland! Ten countries and their unique cultures showcased live all together on one day!
Come this 17 November, this special event will usher in New Zealand’s world famous summer season with a non-stop six-hour cultural extravaganza from the member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) that include: Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam!
First Time Ever!
Experience an explosion of colourful sights, unique cultural performances, exotic sounds and the tongue-tingling food flavours of Southeast Asia all at one go, in one place and at one time. What’s more, there will be over 60 food, crafts and business stalls with the kind of stuff on offer you won’t normally find anywhere else in this part of our world!
Who knows? Maybe you and your family members might do some early Christmas shopping and find some one-of-a-kind things or something else that’s really exotic to give away as for prezzies. Don’t forget to leave a lot of room inside your tummies too because on that day there’ll be a wide variety of dishes and desserts from a selection of 10 country cuisines that will tempt you. Resistance is futile!
And here’s another surprise! Entrance is FREE because its brought to you by the ASEAN Embassies in New Zealand, the Society for Southeast Asian Communities (SSEAC) and NZ Maori Tourism Council who together have worked hard to make it happen with the strong and direct participation of the Heads of Missions of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
It will be a family-friendly occasion celebrating the multicultural diversity of New Zealand by bringing together individual members, groups and also performers from our own Southeast Asian communities from all parts of the country to Auckland supported by participating NGOs, government and local businesses in a one day big bash.
