Thousands enjoyed CultureFest on Sunday and the fun is set to continue all week.

A huge crowd enjoyed food, music and dance at the annual event at Lincoln Domain, celebrating the many cultures that make up Selwyn. This year the events will be continuing all week with a series of workshops, classes and dinners.

Events will range from belly dancing, highland dance and henna workshops to a women's only swim evening and splash times at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Food and drink will also be a big part of the week with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and a Kirant cultural evening featuring food, music and dance from the Kirata people of Nepal.

Food will also be at the heart of helping new residents and old connect at the Dinners of Selwyn potluck dinner at the Lincoln Event Centre this Friday night, with guests from a wide range of cultures stretching from Indonesia to Iran, England, Nigeria and more.
