The annual festival celebrates the multicultural diversity of Katanning Shire with activity, food and information stalls. The Equal Opportunity Commission hosted a stall this year to provide rights-based information and outreach to the community with a focus on racial harassment, race discrimination and religious conviction discrimination. 

Communications Officer Sarah Johnston said given Katanning's diversity, it made perfect sense for the Commission to participate in the festival. 

"Locals and stall holders who visited our stall commented on how pleased they were to see the Commission there and expressed their interest in future outreach work in the area," she said.
