It offers a delightful mix of mouth-watering bites from Victoria’s most popular food trucks, thrilling kids activities and a line-up of music artists that promise an electrifying performance that will have you dancing into the sunset.

The main stage will come alive from 3pm onwards with sweet sounds from artists including the Pierce Brothers, Steph Strings, Kitschen Boy, Mitch Santiago, and D’Arcy Spiller. But before the music commences, the afternoon is dedicated to tantalising your taste buds. Savour the flavours from some of Melbourne’s best food trucks, including Big Boy BBQ, Hoy Pinoy, 400 Gradi, and many more.

But it’s not only about the savoury delights. The ‘Sweet Life’ zone is specifically designed for the sweet-toothed, offering a variety of desserts from cakes to greek doughnuts and gelato. And for those over 18, a visit to Flavour Fest’s dedicated Beer Garden is a must. Here you’ll find local boutique brewers, wine distillers and artisan spirits from Melbourne’s West, including the likes of ReWine, Wonki, and The Prosecco Van.

Flavour Fest is also a family-friendly event. The ‘Play Zone’ will feature a sustainability-focused immersive art experience by the Slow Art Collective, roving artists, and a plethora of other interactive activities. Other zones include ‘Wellness by Woodlea’ for mindfulness activities and the ‘Community Zone’ for local-led activations.

The festival promises non-stop fun with a giant Ferris Wheel, multiple rides, free crafts, and interactive experiences. To top it all off, it will conclude with an awe-inspiring firework display that is sure to add to the magic of the event.
