A celebration of harmony and diversity

11 February 2021

The Mirrabooka Market series is fast making a name for itself as a cultural and food-lover’s haven, showcasing musical, artistic and flavoursome delights of over a dozen countries.

It’s also been drawcard for families from the local area and beyond, with plenty of entertainment and activities for young children and teenagers.

MercyCare’s Capability and Inclusion Coordinator, Community Family and Children Shammy Baijnath said her Mirrabooka-based team was impressed with crowd numbers and the diversity of stall holders at the past two market events and that the event may even be replicated by other communities.

“We wanted it to be a place where diverse communities could come together to celebrate culture, but also a way to generate an income for those who had difficulty finding employment,” Ms Baijnath said.

“It’s now such a great atmosphere of harmony and diversity and a place where diversity is respected, receives exposure and is celebrated."

The Mirrabooka Markets will be held at the Yirrigan Drive carpark at The Square Mirrabooka from 4-9pm on:

  • Thursday, February 18
  • Thursday, March 18
  • Thursday, April 15
