Mela 2017 logo

Join us for the 28th anniversary of the Middlesbrough Mela.

This year's Mela takes place on 11 and 12 August, in Albert Park.

Last year's Mela attracted an audience of around 40,000 over the free two-day festival – it's the largest and longest established event of its kind in the North East.

This year's Mela promises a fabulous mix of world class music, a wide range of entertainment, a family fairground and a popular bazaar, packed full of stalls and participatory workshops and opportunities.

Held every year since 1990, the Middlesbrough Mela sees the town celebrate its culture and diversity. Mela is a Sanskrit word meaning 'gathering' or 'to meet', or a 'fair'.
