Description

The Turkish Pazar Festival will transform the Queen Victoria Market into a traditional Turkish street market.

Visitors will experience the vibrant tastes, colours and sounds of Turkey through food, music, arts and crafts and cultural displays. All entertainment is free and suitable for people of all ages and abilities.

Numerous food stalls will entice with an array of sweet and savoury flavours. Offerings include the tasty gözleme (savoury pancakes), kebabs, lokma (small donuts), Turkish Delight and baklava (sweet pastries). Visitors can relax over an authentic Turkish coffee prepared on a hot bed of sand and maybe get their fortune told.

The day-long stage program will include overseas and local performers. On Sunday, a highlight will be the military precision of the colourful Australian Mehter Band, the first Ottoman-style marching band outside Turkey. Folklore groups will perform on both Saturday and Sunday. Free children's activities will also be available both days.
