Event back to brighten and tighten com­mu­nity

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

THE Spicy Pen­rith fes­ti­val will be re­turn­ing to St Marys next month with all the colour and vi­brancy of Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan.

The an­nual fes­ti­val is in its third year and will fill the Me­mo­rial Hall in St Marys with spices, food and cul­tural dances.

Pen­rith Mayor Ross Fowler said the fes­ti­val not only cel­e­brated but en­cour­aged di­ver­sity and stronger com­mu­nity bonds.

“Spicy Pen­rith is a mul­ti­cul­tural event that cel­e­brates the di­ver­sity of the sub-con­ti­nen­tal cul­ture through food, per­for­mances and dances,” Cr Fowler said.

“The event will en­ter­tain the com­mu­nity and also build stronger bonds and con­nec­tions among the small emerg­ing com­mu­nity, to show­case and celebrate their cul­ture.”

The fes­ti­val will run from 6-10pm on Au­gust 8.

Tick­ets for the event cost $20 for adults and $15 for chil­dren un­der 16. The ad­mis­sion fee in­cludes a meal.
