Pako Festa, now in its thirty-second year, is Geelong's much loved, award-winning, free annual community cultural festival - the biggest of its kind in Australia.

Managed by Diversitat and held on the last weekend of February in Pakington Street, Geelong West, "the multicultural heart of Geelong", it incorporates an extravagant street parade featuring around ninety floats and hundreds of performers representing forty-five affiliated ethnic communities and around sixty other community groups and organisations.

The street is lined with stalls selling traditional foods and arts and crafts, and nine separate stages in the precinct offer performances of music and dance as well as interactive workshops and exhibitions. Pako Festa has become one of Victoria's premier multicultural event, attended by well over 100,000 people in each of the last three years
