Motto: Have a plan and be prepared.
Event:
Celebrate Fitzroy’s Creative History


Sometimes treasure hides in clear sight. The important thing is to realise you've been overlooking it sooner rather than later. So here is your map, and the X is located squarely over the Brunswick Street All Out Festival on the 1st May.

In a quest to promote small business and bring shopper focus back onto local shopkeepers and shopping strips, the Brunswick Street All Out Festival is hosting a series of curated events and workshops alongside some discounts and free samples and tastings on Sunday 1st May 2016.
