2016 Moomba Festival


  • 78 Batman Ave Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

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 from 11 to 14 March 2016.

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. Expect free entertainment, events and activities at the five festival precincts - Main Arena, Kids Zone, Skate Park, River and The Green.

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-two 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.
