OzAsia Festival

OzAsia Festival is the premier Australian international arts festival that connects audiences with arts from across Asia, as well as celebrating the vibrant festivities, traditions, and histories that make up the cultural landscape of the Asian region.

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre over two weeks in September each year, OzAsia Festival features contemporary dance, theatre, music, film, visual arts, community and food events, discussions, and the spectacular Moon Lantern Festival – a free community event in Elder Park that culminates in the breathtaking Moon Lantern Parade at sunset, which is the largest lantern parade held in Australia.

Over the years the Festival has put the spotlight on particular regions of Asia, including Korea, Japan, Malaysia, India, and China. In 2015 the cultural journey will continue under the direction of new Festival Director, Joseph Mitchell, with a focus on the cultural delights of Indonesia.
