While many might not have heard of Kachin State, Wagga will have the chance to sample its delicious cuisine at the upcoming street festival.
It's almost that time of year where residents and visitors can eat as many dishes from around the world to their heart's content.
In the spirit of this weekend's Fusion Festival, The Daily Advertiser has been profiling some of the delicious cuisines that can be found in this city, and the people who can cook them with their eyes closed.
Lucy Zatang's husband, Joseph, fled a village in Kachin State, Myanmar leaving Mrs Zatang and their child behind.
He spent the next year a fish boat slaving away until he had the opportunity to escape.
"In 2005 after he managed to escape to Malaysia he contacted me, and I took my daughter and met him there," Mrs Zatang said.
"In 2011 we finally arrived in Australia."
Mrs Zatang said she loves living in Wagga and finds the citizens to be friendly and welcoming.
"I visited Melbourne and Sydney," she said. "But I did not want to stay because there is so much traffic and it is loud."
Mrs Zatang said she loves cooking dishes from the Kachin culture.
"I love spicy food," she said.
"But, for Fusion, it won't be spicy because not everyone likes it."
Mrs Zatang said she encourages everyone to come down and check out the Kachin Community Stall as it will have plenty of "delicious dishes".
Each year, more than 10,000 people soak up the vibrant festival atmosphere in the heart of Wagga with entertainment, fun activities and market-style eateries.
Headlining Fusion19 are Kardajala Kirridarra, Thandi Phoenix, Hot Potato Band and Big Sky Mountain.
Belinda Crain, CEO of the Multicultural Council, said community members love being able to share food from their culture, and it is the perfect way to share a piece of themselves with Wagga.
Fusion19 is on Saturday at the Victory Memorial Gardens from 4pm.
