Surrender yourself to all things African
If you fancy an immersive cultural experience, Queen Victoria Market is the place to go this September. On Sunday 22nd of the month, from 10am until 4pm, the market will be bursting with the vibrant colours of African culture, along with the sounds, smells and tastes of countries from all over this exotic continent. Welcome to Queen Victoria Market's African Festival!
Queen Victoria Market is legendary for the themed festivals and special events it plays host to. Prior to the African Festival, it will impress visitors with an Indian Festival, a Taste of Portugal and a Truffle Festival. Established in 1878, it is Melbourne's largest market and has a colourful history – did you know the market site was once a cemetery?

This African Festival promises to be a real feast for the senses. The sound of drums will provide a backdrop to the fun and engaging event, drawing in members of the wider community for a cultural experience. Tantalising African cuisine will be on offer, as well as opportunities to participate in arts and crafts – always a hit with the kids. Once you've purchased your delicacies, sit back and enjoy the entertainment on offer.
