Due to COVID-19, Australia Day 2021 will be celebrated differently. This year, there will be no parade but instead a number of smaller events will take place at various locations in the city. Further news and information can be found on the Australia Day Council of SA’s website and Facebook page.
The Vietnamese Community in Australia / SA Chapter (VCA/SA) will participate in cooking presentation at Central Market, the Cultural và Modern Dance team from the Vietnamese Community School will show case their moves in Rundle Mall while a dance group will represent VCA/SA in a variety show at the Entertainment Centre.
VCA/SA has received funding from the National Australia Day Council to join the celebration of Australia Day, and will use it for two purposes:
1. Deliver free meals our emergency services personnel in SA to show our gratitude for their sacrifice in protecting us from disasters such as flood, bush fire and COVID-19. This is also to show our appreciation of Australia’s help and acceptance of Vietnamese refugees over the last 40 years.
2. Host a community event to celebrate Australia Day with free sausage sizzles, potatoes on a stick and bubble teas! There will also be live music, face painting and mini games for children to play with fun prizes to win.
Location: Vietnamese Community Centre
62 Athol St, Athol Park SA 5012
