Brand NEW family-friendly event in Buluk Park
Docklands Harvest Festival is a brand new family-friendly event coming to Buluk Park from Friday 19th to Saturday 20th May 2017.

Entry is FREE and you all are invited to come along and enjoy live entertainment, delicious food stalls and get stuck into a range of hands-on activities, including lantern-making, pickling and preserving.


The festivities will kick off on Friday afternoon from 5pm. Soak up the atmosphere and unwind with folk band Velvet Archers. You can then end the working week with a bite to eat and if you are feeling creative, get involved in lantern-making. The evening will conclude with the burning of an incredible large-scale wooden sculpture which is sure to delight the crowd.


On Saturday, the fun continues with four workshop areas. Come down from 11am to 4pm and try your hand at making Italian Street food, pickling and preserving, creating pasta from scratch, gardening for balconies, hydroponics, take home terrariums and more!

Families can also sample food and beverages from the delicious food vendors, whilst enjoying music from local artists and headline act, Cookin' on 3 Burners.

Pop by after work on Friday or with family and friends on Saturday. All are welcome!
