Welcome to

BELFAST MELA

Belfast’s most loved family festival returns this year with a fresh look, as we present an amazing week long programme of world music, dance, food, theatre and art finishing with a magical Mini Mela  across the city centre.

 

While it won’t be possible to return to Botanic Gardens until 2022,  we look forward to bringing a little culture, colour and creativity back to our city this summer to celebrate our proud cultural diversity.
