Live in the Carlton area? Love food and meeting new people?

As part of Neighbour Day festivities — Australia’s national celebration of community engagement within the neighbourhood — new Carlton residents are invited to join the Carlton Community Welcome Lunch. If you’re new to the suburb, you can use this opportunity to not only try new food prepared by friendly faces in the area but to also mingle with local residents and connect with some of your fellow neighbours.

But don’t come empty-handed!

If you wish to attend the event, it is best advised that you bring food of your own to share with everyone else. The concept of the Welcome Lunch is to connect people through food and to share your stories and the significance your dish might have to you or your culture. The event is all about fostering community and what better way to do that than by having a massive feast with your neighbours?!

The alcohol-free event will take place on Faraday St, just in front of the Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre. The entire street will be closed for Carlton’s own Neighbour Day fun with activities including chalk-drawing, local music and information and learning stalls available during the Welcome Lunch as well.

Don’t miss the opportunity to make new connections in this FREE communal event!

The Carlton Community Welcome Lunch on Faraday St is a family friendly event and will take place this Sunday, March 26 from 10.00am – 2.00pm. Entry to the Carlton Community Welcome Lunch is FREE however registration is required and can be done at the Eventbrite page.
