Celebrate Holi with a Nepalese dumpling festival.
The dazzling sights and insane aromas of Nepal's annual Holi festival of colour and love are coming to the Coburg Velodrome this weekend. From midday on Sunday, March 26, M Festival will celebrate Nepalese culture, Nepalese music and — perhaps most importantly — Nepalese food.
The free event will feature more than a dozen different momo (that is, Nepalese dumpling) marquees, along with food trucks and market stands galore. There'll also be rides and live music across two different stages, including performances by Jakubi, Big Words, and internationally acclaimed Nepalese folk band Kutumba.
Entry into the event won't cost you a penny, but you should still register to ensure your entry. You're also encouraged to bring along a gold coin donation for the Non Resident Nepali Association's Earthquake Reconstruction Project.
