The First La Faya Festival was held at Federation Square, Melbourne in March 2004. It showcased the rich and colourful culture of Mauritians and Rodriguans in Victoria. This premiere event was overwhelmingly successful as over 15,000 people from diverse communities attended the three days of celebrations.

About C.H.A.R.M Vic
C.H.A.R.M Vic is a community based, non-profit organisation, registered under the name of the 'Cultural Historical Association of Rodriguans and Mauritians in Victoria". We have been legally registered since the 28th July 2003. Registration No: A004546G.
Our ultimate goal is to stage an exhibition at the Melbourne Immigration Museum - Melbourne, to showcase the patterns of migration and settlement by these two groups to Australia since the 1880's. We also aim to highlight our profile as active members of the Australian culture and society today.
We want to strengthen the ties within the community and build strong relationships with other community groups. La Faya Festival is part of Phase Two of this community building initiative.
