Cultural Festival

One of the more important events in the Australian Latvian calendar is the Cultural Festival or Kultūras Dienas. The Cultural Festival is held every two years, on a rotational basis, giving latvians and non latvians the opportunity to participate in or experience various latvian cultural concerts and events.

The next Cultural Festival will take place in Adelaidee, 26-31 December 2018. Further information about the Cultural Festival may be found on the LFANZ Calendar or the Cultural Festival webpage, ALKD’s.
