The Burwood Village Autumn Fiesta returns with a fun-filled Star Wars celebration on Saturday 4th of May, 2019!

Come join the businesses of Burwood Village and take part in a super fun day of carnival rides, interactive activities, delicious food and beverages, live entertainment, giveaways and a special visit from your favourite Star Wars characters!

Entry is FREE and the fiesta will kick off at 1pm! Below are some of the awesome highlights you and your family can look forward to:

  • In the Beaurepaires Young Family Fun Zone (Beaurepaires carpark), you will find FREE face painting and crafts at the Burwood Neighbourhood House stall, an animal farm and jumping castle. Chat to Boroondara Neighbourhood Watch, check out a police car or the Beaurepaires ute.

  • Lions Club Boroondara Op Shop will be running a sausage sizzle and operating a book stall (weather permitting). Don't forget to try your hand at the monster putting comp run by Burwood Drummond Golf. Gold coin donation to enter and all money raised is donated to White Ribbon Australia. WIN: Guess the number of hazards (nails/screws) in the jar. Grand Prize $100 gift card and a free Tyre Rotation and Wheel Alignment.

  • Myrniong Street will host Carnival Rides including cha cha, super slide 4 and chair-o-plane (a $5 wristband gets unlimited rides), the Kids Entrepreneur Market and amazing community activities including a sports circuit from Ready Steady Go Kids, chocolate toss run by Alfred Road Kindergarten and soccer skills fun from Soccajoeys. WIN: Guess the number of lipsticks in the jar and you can win a kids pamper party worth $275 with Evodia Beauty Care.

  • Melton Ave will host the Buxton Entertainment Area, a Fiesta hub stage with a program of free entertainment all day. The stage area also sports tables and chairs for you to chill out, grab a drink & snack or meal from a nearby cafe and enjoy your Village. Prohibition Food and Wine will be running an All Day Mornington Brewery Beer & Cocktail Bar and will also have a Prohibition Food Stand selling their small plates – so you won't have to go far!

  • On Toorak Rd, Buxton Real Estate will play host to Bricks 4 Kidz building activity – Star Wars style – and while you're there you can enter their free raffle to win one of their exclusive Camberwell themed Monopoly boards! Drop by Pet House Grooming & Boutique and pick up a free rawhide treat for your four-legged friend between 1pm – 5pm and swing by The Gents Cave Barber to get your $20 mohawk during the Fiesta (for kids and adults).

  • Boroondara Cares and local Rotarians will be running a stall where families can learn all about bees. Looking for treats? Then make sure to stop at Wattle Park Primary stall selling homemade cakes, biscuits and slices from the families of the school. Parents should also stop by Burwood Cellars for delicious in-store tastings at the best wine store between 1pm -6pm.

  • And as it is May the 4th, Star Wars characters roaming the streets from 1.30pm and a 3D photo backdrop for cool space station pics. Make sure to drop by and get a shot as one lucky photo on the day will become the cover star on the next issue of Burwood Bulletin!

  • There will also be best-dressed prizes for kids and pets — so bust out your best Darth, Kylo Ren, Rey, Obi-Wan or Yoda look! $100 gift vouchers (to be spent in Burwood Village) will be awarded to the best girl (goodie and baddie categories) and best boy (goodie and baddie categories). The best pet winner receives a $100 voucher for grooming from Pet House Grooming & Boutique.

  • Finally, live music from the stage with Brothers in Harmony will herald the sunset on this beautiful Autumn day, to close the Fiesta.
