Festival fun as the summer nights roll on
Published on 24 January 2019
As the summer school holidays wrap up, Maribyrnong’s busy festival program rolls on, with the much-loved Yarraville Festival kicking things off on Sunday 17 February.
Now in its 38th year, this annual festival celebrates the community's boundless creativity featuring music, film, comedy, performance art and local makers, plus the neighbourhood's finest food.
“Each year we strive to create a Festival to put everyone’s best foot forward,” said Carla Smith from the Yarraville Festival Committee
“This year we have five very unique stages of entertainment: ‘School of Rock’ – showcasing under 18’s talent; ‘Kindred Stage’ presenting a diverse mix of local musicians and artists; ‘Community Stage’ showcasing everything from choirs to karate; and the ‘Ballarat Street Stage’ and ‘Main Stage’, hosting the infamous Dog Show and over 15 acts from across the inner west.”
This iconic festival embraces the cultural diversity, industrious nature and artistic flair of the inner west and is one not to be missed.
