NAIDOC Week happens in July every year, with a packed program of events to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The theme this year? 'Voice. Treaty. Truth.'

One of the biggest events of the week is NAIDOC in the City, which invites Sydneysiders down to Hyde Park for a day of festivities from 11am–3pm on Saturday, July 13. The event is a sensory delight (seriously). Underground earth ovens will be temporarily installed in the park, cooking up slow-cooked samplers of everything from crocodile san choy bau and kangaroo chilli pies.

You'll get to catch loads of music and performances including hip-hop duo Nooky and Koibe Dee, electro-pop group The Merindas, performances from the Muggera dancers and loads more. While you're there, visit weaving and jewellery-making workshops or go check out the art gallery curated by Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-Op and APY Art Centre Collective. There will also be a range of market stalls showcasing arts, crafts and books.

NAIDOC in the City is held in Hyde Park from 11am to 3pm, find the full program here.
