Multicultural Carnival

The Multicultural Carnival is a key culturally and linguistically (CaLD) diverse event in the NWA calendar. The one-day event is an annual school-based competition held by NWA. The carnival promotes participation and engages players from a wide variety of ethnicities to foster their netball skills in a fun and encouraging environment. The Multicultural Carnival is a celebration of WA’s cultural diversity and requires 5 participants with 1 or more parents born overseas or to identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander on court at all times. 

The Multicultural Carnival is a schools-based carnival celebrating the diversity within netball across the state. The inaugural carnival was held in 2015 at Belmont Netball Association with more than 200 participants across 17 teams. Since then, the Multicultural Carnival has grown beyond measures with Netball WA hosting almost 1000 participants, 100 teams with more than 60 nationalities in 2023.
