Description

Share stories, food, music, dance and cultural displays with the Turkish community to celebrate the anniversary of the arrival of Melbourne’s first Turkish migrants.

Sip a Turkish coffee prepared in hot sand, savour a Turkish-style barbecue, enjoy gözleme (now one of Melbourne’s traditional foods), taste Turkish-style cheeses and yoghurts, and top this off with wickedly sweet Turkish delight and baklava.

Cultural displays and a cooking demonstration will provide more information on Turkey and its culture and history, while an all-day stage program will provide a sight and sound explosion of various traditional and modern performances. A highlight will be the appearance of the colourful and exciting Australian Ottoman Mehter Band at noon.

Location

Immigration Museum
