This Sunday I will join people from across the inner west at the Bairro Português Petersham Food and Wine Fair.
A vibrant street celebration of Portuguese culture, the fair plays an important role in bringing our diverse community together.
It also recognises the ongoing contribution of the Portuguese community to Sydney.
I count myself very lucky to live in the inner west of Sydney, a multicultural heartland where neighbours live side by side in harmony.
We are stronger because of our diversity, which is why festivals like the Bairro Português Petersham Food and Wine Fair are so important.
In a testimony to its success, Sunday also marks the 14th edition of the Bairro Português Petersham Food and Wine Fair.
