India Australia friendship fair
Sydney Olympic Park was transformed into a little piece of India on 25 August 2013 as around 15,000 people flooded the stadium for the annual India-Australia friendship fair. First celebrated in 1994, the event is a popular one, attended by many members of Sydney's thriving Indian community, as well as senior politicians from Australia's major political parties.

At MoreVisas, we are proud to help many Indians realise their dreams of living and working in Australia. We are always interested in hearing from the people we've placed, and particularly enjoy getting updates about celebrations, whether it's the birth

of a new Indian-Australian or a large scale event like this one

A day to remember

The India-Australia Friendship Fair is held every year in August, to coincide with and celebrate India's Independence Day. It provides a chance for Indians living in Australia to celebrate together, while also welcoming Australians and other immigrants to share the celebration. The 67th anniversary of our independence was a day to remember for Sydneysiders.

Fun, food and fireworks

Starting at 10am, a wide range of activities and entertainments were available. As well as numerous food stalls, with dishes from across India, there events for the whole family to enjoy. Small children were diverted with amusements like bouncy castles and face painting, while the more sophisticated palate could enjoy fashion shows, live music and dancing displays. Whole families gathered together to watch the grand parade, and later brilliant fireworks lit up the festival grounds. 

An impact on the wider community

While commemorating our heritage is important for Indians living outside India, events such as this fair have a larger significance. As Indian-Australians and new arrivals alike join to celebrate a significant event, they strengthen bonds within the community. The India-Australia Friendship Fair also provides a great opportunity to welcome people from other cultures, and to show them the best India has to offer. The fair was visited by families and individuals from dozens of cultures. 

The festival is managed by the United Indian Association, an organisation which aims to act as a channel between Indians in Australia and the Australian government, as well as providing support, entertainment and generating mutual respect between the Indian community in Australia and other Australian communities. It's significance and impact is perhaps shown by the number of politicians from both major parties who attend the event. Australian prime minister, Julia Gillard, attended in 2012 and over a dozen politicians were present in 2013.
