This hugely popular event offers visitors the chance to experience and celebrate the many cultures of the world, with a wide variety of music and dance acts performing throughout the day.

There are some new features this year. There will be two stages - the main stage and the bandstand stage - all featuring a diverse and exciting range of performers. The bandstand stage will focus on live, acoustic performances.

Highlights from the main stage include Mariachi Las Adelitas, an all-female mariachi band.
