Bathurst Regional Council, in conjunction with The Neighbourhood Centre, are set to host Harmony Day in the Bathurst Library forecourt next Saturday.
The free event is held each year to celebrate Bathurst's rich multicultural community, and will feature food and live entertainment from cultural musicians and dancers.
Multicultural participants are also invited to attend dressed in garments traditional to their place of origin.
"It's an event where people can come and gain an insight into the diverse array of cultures that call Bathurst home," The Neighbourhood Centre's migrant support officer Jackie Lanigan said.
"There's many people in our community from different cultures and countries, but we don't always get the opportunity to break down the barriers, which is why Harmony Day is such an important local event."
Mayor Bobby Bourke said the event is an opportunity to acknowledge diversity while demonstrating commitment to living together harmoniously as Australians.
"Bathurst has a growing and vibrant multicultural community and events such as Harmony Day let us come together and share our cultural heritage and celebrate what it means to be Australian," Cr Bourke said.
The event will run from 10am to 12pm. For more information, call 6333 6523.
