A stay at home Mum who doesn't stay at home much; too many exciting things to be discovering in this city...
For street food eats and dazzling performances
Dandenong Market is a delight for the senses; fresh produce, tantalising hot food, colourful stalls and a melting pot of ethnicities. This vibrant market was established in 1866 and has long been a favourite for many families in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Back for its sixth year, the Full Moon Festival will grace the Dandenong Market for the day on Sunday 15th September.

The Full Moon Festival is a celebration of the brightest and fullest moon. In China, this symbolises peace, prosperity and the union of families. To mark the occasion the market will showcase dazzling performances and delicious street food from South East Asia. Among the program of events are perennial favourites; the dragon dance and the lion dance. Food trucks and stalls selling mouth-watering Asian street food such as satay, pad Thai, Korean fried chicken and a whole lot more will have your tummy rumbling.

For the younger visitors, there will be craft workshops to enjoy, and live music will keep everybody's toes tapping throughout the day. The celebrations kick off at 9am and continue until 4pm. Dandenong Market hosts a range of other events throughout spring including the Dandenong Market Curry Festival, Food Discovery Tours and Danny the Dandenong Market Train.
