Our annual Ocean St World Festival  is a feast for the senses where cultures from around the world bring the young, old, inquisitive and adventurous together to celebrate diversity. 

Artists bring their unique talents across four stages with acts from Japan to Bolivia, Budapest to Jamaica, Salsa dancing and Bollywood workshops, choirs, djembe workshops and much more. This is a one-day opportunity to travel the world. 

In 2016 the FREE Ocean Street World Festival attracted 40,000 people.
