Cardiff Multicultural Mela

Section Image

In the wet and miserable summer of 2007, the clouds disappeared for one special day to let the glorious sunshine through on Wales. This paved the way for one of the most unique events in the history of Cardiff, the first Cardiff Multicultural Mela. This community and social cohesion event is open to everyone, all ages and all colours. The mela is now in its ninth year and previous events have attracted upto 30,000+ visitors in a day. The next mela event will take place on Sunday 15th September 2019 and is set to be bigger and better! The Mela showcases a wide diversity of cultures, music, dance, arts, fashion and food to name a few. Although the Mela's roots are Asian cultures, this is a festival for all and aims to educate, share and celebrate all cultures.
