Lankan Fest Values

The Lankan Fest wishes to attract people of all ethnicities and age groups to show the best Sri Lanka has to offer. The aim of the Lankan Fest Event is to share the motherland of many Sri Lankans living in Australia today with the people of Melbourne. Lankan Festival is all about educating communities, supporting small businesses and celebrate everything that is Sri Lanka with the Australian community. The Lankan Festival is a beautiful celebration that helps impoverished communities in Sri Lanka while also giving back to the country they now call home; Australia.


History of Lankan Fest

It all started with an idea in 2014, in Melbourne among a group of friends. From that amazing idea came the first Sri Lankan Festival in 2015 at the Queen Victoria Market. Since then, the Lankan Festival has grown in size and style, with more than 50,000 people attending the Lankan Fest 2018 event. After the success, the Lanken Fest has now moved to Harbour Espanade Docklands to provide an even bigger and bolder celebration of Sri Lankan culture.
Lankan Festival is now the most popular Sri Lankan cultural event in Melbourne. It is the go to event where you will have unforgettable food and cultural experiences with others.
