The Southampton Mela Festival is a long-standing summer highlight in Southampton’s events calendar celebrating Modern and Traditional Asian Culture.

Over the last two decades, the Southampton Mela festival attracts thousands of 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. 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.
