City of Whittlesea Community Festival

City of Whittlesea Public Gardens Barry Road Lalor


The Community Festival is returning to the Whittlesea Public Gardens in Lalor, and there will be some changes to the site and the timing of the event.

Come and discover great music, dance, workshops and art at this year's Whittlesea Community Festival: Many Voices, One Country.

Ride the trackless train around the festival and get your passport stamped at every 'village'.

Visit the Wominjeka Village for lively bands, the Chillage for a tour of songs from around the world and the Kulin Village to experience local Aboriginal culture and art.

Learn a dance at the Bubbup (Youth) Village and play a game of giant chess at the Social Games Village.

Let roving performers make you smile and taste delicious foods.

Fun and interactive for all ages, families and cultures, this festival is not to be missed!

Note: There will not be ATM on site.
