This March the green lawns of Canberra’s National Gallery of Australia will come alive with Fiesta!, a colourful festival of art, culture, music and film celebrating the vibrant sights, sounds and tantalising tastes of Peru.
Part of the Enlighten Festival, Fiesta! is a free event held on the evenings of Friday 7 March and Saturday 8 March in conjunction with the Gallery’s major summer exhibitionGold and the Incas: Lost Worlds of Peru, which is currently on display showcasing the splendour of the famous Incan empire and its predecessors.

Fiesta! visitors will be treated to delicious Peruvian inspired cuisine, as well as contemporary South American six-piece band, Tigramuna, which will spice up the event with its award-winning blend of South American music. Australia’s premier Peruvian folk dance group, Te Amo Peru will perform dances from all over Peru, both traditional and contemporary.

From 9:30pm, late-night film screenings of The Motorcycle Diaries (Friday) and fascinating food documentary Peru Sabe: Cuisine as an agent of social change (Saturday) will take place in the James O Fairfax Theatre.

Visitors will also be able to glimpse into Peru’s rich history and the many archaeological treasures as the Gold and the Incas: Lost Worlds of Peru exhibition offers ticketed, late-night entry over these two special nights.

For those who want a truly Peruvian adventure then these wonderful events are not to be missed.
