The MarchMingle is all about having fun. Get involved and let’s create strong bonds of unity, inclusion and understanding, all while helping to support great causes such as Canberrans going through hard times.

The MarchMingle is more than just a walk. It’s a journey of discovery and appreciation of the diverse cultures that make up our fabulous multicultural city.

Get ready to represent your cultural heritage and mingle with others at the intercultural Saturday MarchMingle Bridge2Bridge walk, then continue the fun and games at the Mingle Picnic!

How will you represent your country or your cultural background in the Communities at Work MarchMingle?

We can’t wait to see you there!

MarchMingle Walk Options

The Saturday MarchMingle walk starts at 10am in Lennox Gardens. We call this one the Communities at Work MarchMingle ‘Bridge2Bridge walk‘.

While the Bridge2Bridge Mingle Walk is on, there will be a 600m MiniMingle for the under 10s at Lennox Gardens.

A different MarchMingle walk will be held on Sunday that starts at Albert Hall at 9am. We call this one the Communities at Work ‘BushNBack walk’.

So, you can enter the MarchMingle Saturday walk, or the MarchMingle Sunday walk – or, why not do both?

Both MarchMingles are different

The Saturday walk is fairly flat and is suitable for wheelchairs, while the Sunday walk is more challenging, as it goes through some bush trails close to the city.

Both 7km walks are suitable for people of all ages, and you can walk as individuals, as a team or as a family or cultural group.

The Mingle Walks are not races

The goal is to to connect with other walkers, to take your time and chat with the other participants. Share your stories and make new friends and walk along together enjoying each other’s company.

It’s an opportunity to get outdoors and meet some colourful and interesting people from different cultural backgrounds and maybe win some prizes!

What  country will you represent?

Share Your Heritage and Be Part of The Fun

The best part of the MarchMingle is that you get to show off your cultural heritage in a creative way.

You can wear something that represents your cultural heritage, such as a traditional costume, or carry a flag, or wear a special hat, or anything else that represents your nation.

Music is at the heart of every culture. You could share music and dance as you move along.

The idea is to meet others, chat, make friends, learn about cultures, and embrace our differences.

Peace in the community comes from greater understanding and it is through walking and talking with others that we will learn and understand people in our multicultural community.
