There's nothing small about the Glenferrie Festival that attracts over 80,000 people annually. There's an equally large number of stalls (250 stalls) to cover the masses - selling food, market products and community stalls. It's the place to be on Sunday 3 March 2024 from 11am to 5pm at 573 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, to be entertained by a myriad of performers roving through the crowds. The Festival is located along Glenferrie Road, spanning from Barkers to Burwood Roads in Hawthorn. See the discussion section of the event page for more information about some of the stallholders. Facebook is a great way to stay in touch for updates and has a lot of interesting content about the Festival.

Pre-purchasing saves you $20 dollars (excludes booking fee) and pre-purchase tickets are on sale only until 2 March 2024. See here for height restrictions.

    From stage performances to street acts, there's something for everyone at this all-ages event for the whole community.
