Want to connect with the community of Bulgarians in Australia?

Who we are

Organising community events is our passion. Since the early start we wanted to enrich your experience, making it meaningful and not just fun and exciting.

Why we are

When you visit our events  for the first time, it transforms your life, and connects you to the people you always wanted to get to know and love.

Where you are

This is a great opportunity to catch up with people originally from Bulgaria, their friends and families as well as those who are interested in the Bulgarian culture.

How it starts

We organise regular events for the Bulgarian community and their Australian friends in Sydney and NSW. All are welcome!

Martenitsa Tradition is an ancient custom, officially recognized by UNESCO in 2017, celebrated in Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania, Moldova and other Balkan countries – originating from centuries-old Thracian civilisation. On the 1st of March every year, red and white tassels, pom-poms or bracelets – known as Martenitsa – are exchanged, given to loved ones with a wish for luck, wellbeing and fertility. During the month of March, people are wearing martenitsa on their hands or clothing and once they see a stork, they hang the martenitsa on a tree. 

Rodina Sydney is organising in partnership with City of Sydney and the State Library of NSW a vibrant multicultural event to mark this century old tradition with a lot of music, dancing, craft and art.

Bring the entire family and join the fun!

Volunteers needed! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us for further details.

Public Health Orders and restrictions 2020

On 18 March 2020, NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard made an Order under Section 7 of the Public Health Act 2010 to force the immediate cancellation of major events with more than 500 people.

The object of this Order is to deal with the public health risk of COVID-19 and its possible consequences by giving a Ministerial direction that prohibits mass gatherings of 500 or more people in outdoor spaces and 100 people or more in indoor spaces, subject to certain exclusions.
