Melbourne United will host the free festival ahead of their blockbuster Multicultural Game against the NZ Breakers

Melbourne United are once again excited to showcase the diversity of the city they represent by holding a free Multicultural Festival outside of John Cain Arena.

Thanks to major partner City of Melbourne, the festival will take place on Sunday 22 October from midday until 2pm ahead of The Multicultural Game.

Featuring activities for the entire family, it’s the perfect opportunity to get out and embrace the diversity of Melbourne ahead of one of United’s most anticipated games of the season.

Free basketball clinics will be run throughout the festival for children ages 5-8 and 9-12, as well as a charity shootout thanks to our charity partners at Helping Hoops.

Away from the court, there will be loads of experiences, including face painting, a jumping castle, henna art, food trucks and multicultural displays.

All of this will surround live performances from the ENGIE Superhoodz, as well as Wadaiko Rindo, an incredible energetic and dynamic traditional Japanese drumming group.

Families can make a weekend of the event by checking out the Melbourne Fringe Festival on Saturday, before taking in all the excitement of a Melbourne United home game on Sunday.

With John Cain Arena just a five minute walk from Richmond station, the festival is an easy one to plan and reach through PTV.

While the festival is free, if you want to make sure you don’t miss a second of the action inside John Cain Arena, get in quick to secure your seat for the game here.
