Throughout the year this public space offers its city a massive array of activities and events, ranging from live music events to beer award shows. However, now that schools are about to be out for two weeks, it has lined up a collection of fun filled events especially designed for the wee ones.
Please note that the following selection does not coincide with the one listed on the official website, as it does not include events that have sold out.
A mouth-watering name for a sustainable-minded event, organised by The Little Veggie Patch Co, a unique grassroots business aimed at promoting growth of chemical-free vegetable gardens, as well as encouraging a grow-it-yourself approach.
They're also the guys responsible for populating Fed Square's car park rooftop with merry crates of veggies rented by gardenless Melburnians who still want to have a veggie patch.
The green-spirited initiative also includes a workshop for children, who will visit the Pop up Patch vegetable patches and learn some basic facts about home-grown food, as well as explore the fascinating world of worm farms.
Note: Act fast! Spots are limited and quickly selling out. When: April 6th Cost: $25
The Melbourne Comedy Festival takes to the streets, and it's got laughs for everyone. This year's cast includes both native and international performers such as German juggler Hilby, acclaimed Gentlemen of the Road The Chipolatas, circus performer Anna Pocket Rocket, The Amazing Mr Fish and many more.
Come on, mothers. Aren't you always telling your sons to get off the console and go out and play, that staring at a screen is no way to spend a lovely sunny day? Well, there might just be a way to make everyone happy.
