we're launching our new site soon

Belfast Mela, is the city’s annual celebration of global cultures when tens of thousands of visitors come together to celebrate our people and diversity.  The Mela transforms the park into a magical global garden filled with the sights, sounds and aromas of nations right around the world. Music, dance, arts and culture come together to create a heady, good humoured atmosphere which invites the world into the heart of our city.

The Mela will return on the 26th August 2018 from 12noon - 6pm at Botanic Gardens. We are putting the finishing touches to our exciting 2018 programme and gearing up for our ticket launch in June 2018.
