Festival Delights

What happens off the stages is as much a part of the WOMADelaide experience as what happens on them...

Taste The World


In an intimate marquee in Speakers' Corner, the much-loved Taste The World program combines exotic flavours, fascinating cultures and moving stories in a cooking presentation like no other. Join some of the festival's biggest stars (and a couple of Adelaide cooking legends) as they swap their instruments for cooking utensils and introduce you to the food and culture of their homelands, entwined with musical interludes and intimate personal anecdotes.

A world of cuisine at WOMADelaide


WOMADelaide is a food lover's dream in a musical paradise, offering an incredibly diverse selection of international cuisines prepared by some of Australia’s finest food vendors. We take great pride in presenting food choices above and beyond the standard festival fare, with dishes that draw inspiration from The Barossa to Bangalore!
