Harmony Week 2020
Nasmaste! Sawasdee! Ni Hao! Guten Tag!
Frankston City Council has partnered with twelve local cafes and restaurants to help our community celebrate Harmony Week. These businesses are serving a $10 cultural special from 15-21 March 2020!
This is your chance to travel the world with your taste buds at an affordable price across Frankston City. Pop in for ‘Mexican scrambled eggs’ at Bear & Cub in Seaford, or Filipino ‘Chris Chris chicken’ at Mr Spriggins in Carrum Downs, or why not try the ‘Sri Lankan Beef Pan Roll’ at McClelland Gallery Café in Langwarrin? All dishes are priced at $10 and are available for one week only.
There’s a great incentive to visit a few cafes during the week too. Customers who dine with three or more participating businesses can go in the running to win a prize worth $300 made up of a $25 voucher at all twelve businesses.
Check out the full list of participating businesses and the dish they will be serving for $10 during Harmony Week in the food passport attached to this page.

Celebrating Harmony Week
Harmony Week is a great opportunity for community groups, sporting clubs, schools, and businesses to celebrate the cultural diversity in our area and spread the message of ‘everyone belongs’. Community driven events can create cultural inclusion and community cohesion at a community or neighbourhood level. It creates an opportunity to think, talk about and recognise how our differences and our similarities make Australia a great place to live.
Celebrating Harmony Week can take any form you wish – big or small! For example, you could:
- Host a morning tea
- Wear orange which is the colour of Harmony Week
- Share food
- Take an excursion to a cultural place
- Host a movie screening
