Event back to brighten and tighten community
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.
