Glenferrie Festival is THE place to go
Glenferrie Festival is now one of Melbourne's largest community festivals. It generally attracts about 100,000 people each year, which is a wonderful achievement!

In 2019, the theme for the festival is 'carnival' and it is presented by the Glenferrie Traders Association with support from the council.

From last year's event

It is the largest one-day event in the City of Boroondara and will be held this year on Sunday 3rd March 2019, from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm. It is a free event and will be on at 707 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, which is between Burwood and Barkers Roads.

The local shops and restaurants stay open and are joined by hundreds of stalls, a makers market, live entertainment, many different rides and much more. It will be a family fun day where apart from shopping you will be entertained by the following:

Street parade
Live music
Fashion parades
And more

There will be a massive 250 stalls for you to browse through, so make sure you get there early! Some of the things they will be selling include food, artisan products from the Hawthorn Makers Market, the Young Entrepreneurs Market, community stalls and all the regular Glenferrie Hawthorn traders. You will find some great bargains and unusual items and you can also sample some of the menus.

Glenferrie Festival will be a super day for everyone, including families, young and old, and singles. It will be casual with great food and unique local products to see and buy.
