Moomba Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

10 Mar 2017 to 12 Mar 2018

Love Melbourne, love Moomba.

Proudly presented by the City of Melbourne, Moomba Festival is Australia’s largest community festival with a uniquely Melbourne program of activities and events running.

Each year the city’s beloved festival attracts fun-loving crowds of all ages to Birrarung Marr and Alexandra Gardens on the banks of the iconic Yarra River to enjoy its bustling carnival and family-friendly program.

Moomba proudly beams with Melburnian charm. Enjoy a talented stable of local performers; the Moomba Masters’ world-class water sports; pro scoot, skate and BMX comps; hospitality offerings from local traders; artistically designed floats inspired by the community for the Moomba Parade; as well as the wild and wacky Birdman Rally.

Sixty-three years on, Moomba is wise with age, steeped in tradition, but undoubtedly young at heart – just like the city it calls home. Celebrate Melbourne’s diversity and creativity at this year’s festival.
