Central Coast Council’s Harmony Day event, Flavours by the Sea, will return on Saturday 25 March bringing the tastes, sights and sounds of the world to the Central Coast.

17 March 2023


FLAVOURS by the Sea is an annual celebration of the region’s multicultural diversity with a taste of the world’s best food, music, and art along Terrigal Foreshore, from 11am-3pm.


Council’s Unit Manager Community and Culture, Glenn Cannard, said Flavours by the Sea is a popular event that brings our community together to celebrate our differences.


“This annual event celebrates the many cultures that make up our community, embracing the ‘everyone belongs’ message of Harmony Day by showcasing sensational music and cuisine from local eateries,” Mr Cannard said.


“Everyone is invited to savour the flavour and excite those tastebuds while experiencing all the different cultures on the Coast through the local eateries, as well as activations and music along the foreshore.


“Council is proud to offer the community the opportunity to enjoy free live entertainment from a wide range of artists as well as roving entertainment, caricature drawings, pop up entertainment, community artwork, workshops, a guided ceremonial dance and much more!”


To complement the Terrigal event, Gosford Regional Gallery will be also celebrating Harmony Day with Chohwa - a celebration of Japanese culture on Sunday 26 March from 11am-3pm.


Visitors to the Gallery and Edogawa Gardens can join in on a number of activities such as Japanese kite flying, origami and kite-making activities, Edogawa Garden tours, a Japanese calligraphy workshop, Japanese food, and Taiko drumming.


Council’s Administrator, Rik Hart said that Flavours by the Sea and Chohwa aims to engage residents to participate in their community and build a sense of belonging for an increasingly diverse Central Coast.


“These events are an opportunity to recognise our growing diversity, community spirit and great natural environment that makes our region a great place to live, work and play,” Mr Hart said.


“I encourage everyone to come together to celebrate the diversity of cultures we have on the Coast this Harmony Day.”


Temporary road closures will be in place along Terrigal Esplanade between Campbell Crescent and Kurrawyba Avenue from 5am to approximately 5pm on Saturday 25 March.


A FREE shuttle bus service will be in operation for Flavours by the Sea at Terrigal. For the full schedule as well as more information on the events, please visit
