Presented by the Confucius Institute and the University of Newcastle, China Week is an initiative to facilitate greater understanding between Newcastle and China through a series of interactive cultural, social and academic events.

This September, China Week once again brings in new elements of wine, tourism and connectivity into the design of the activities. China week 2019 will showcase a 2-day program consisting of a Wine and Tourism Business Forum on Friday 6th September and a free Cultural Festival on Saturday 7th September.

The Cultural Festival this year will take place in the beautiful bush campus in Callaghan at the University of Newcastle. It is to celebrate the contemporary and traditional Chinese culture, food, art, lion and dragon dances with interactive displays, food markets, wine tasting and demonstrations.

Don’t miss out on this colourful and vibrant celebration between 10.00am – 4.00pm on Saturday, 7th September.

Choose to fill your day with an array of delights and activities to see and do, or bring a picnic rug and sit back, relax, and enjoy the food, music and live performances.

The Festival aims to celebrate cultural diversity and inclusiveness while offering a fun-filled day to engage with students and welcome the community to the campus.

A great day out for the entire family.
