A large crowd gathers outdoors at a summer festival, with people sitting on the grass and walking around. Various stalls, tents, and a first aid station are visible. Colorful balloons are being held in the air, and trees can be seen in the background.

The Southampton Mela Festival is a long-standing summer highlight in Southampton’s events calendar celebrating Modern and Traditional Asian Culture. Save the date: Saturday 13th July 2024, 11am - 10pm

Running for two decades, the Southampton Mela Festival now attracts around 30,000 thousand people per year from along the South coast to enjoy a fusion of music, dance and family activities, all of an international flavour from world-class artists. We have built a reputation as a great family day out with plenty of entertainment and activities for young and old plus entrance is free, as are most of the family focused activities.

The festival is the largest free festival in the region, attracting international artists to its three stages, hosting arts, craft, music and dance workshops, and providing delicious world food stalls. 

Art Asia is committed to creating a sustainable and park friendly festival, we are working with festival artists, suppliers and stalls to make better environmental choices.
