THE many cultures of the Fraser Coast will embrace their similarities and celebrate their differences, in recognition of Harmony Day.

Held across Australia since 1999, Harmony Day's message is "Everyone Belongs".

University of Southern Queensland Fraser Coast will host activities from 11.30am and 1pm, including a workshop on traditional emu feather skirts. Indigenous students will provide a display of artwork and cultural activities, plus those attending will enjoy complimentary international cuisine and activities.

The Maryborough Neighbourhood Centre will hold A Taste of Harmony with entertainment, luncheon featuring Japanese, Thai and Filipino cuisine and demonstrations from 10am to 2pm.

This will also be the first event of the Fraser Coast Cultural Festival, which will hold its biggest events this weekend across Maryborough and Hervey Bay.

Visit the Fraser Coast Cultural Festival website for more information.
