Motto: Have a plan and be prepared.
At Melbourne Star Observation Wheel

What do you know about Peru? If you're like me, probably not much and that's what makes the 2016 Melbourne Peruvian Festival so awesome. Submerse yourself in South American culture at the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel on Saturday 16th July 2016, and enjoy all the wonders Peru has to offer.

You can hear it in the tone of their vibrant music. See it in their dance and movement. Taste it thanks to a huge selection of Peruvian cuisine that will be on offer on the day. There is no doubt you will come away with a clear sense of what makes the Land of the Incas so magical and wonderful.

Spectacular dance shows will be performed throughout the day, and after 7pm the Salon Elegance Spiegeltent will come alive with bands, entertainment and even more dancing.

There will be carnival rides along with plenty to see and do and, most importantly, taste. For brew lovers, sample some genuine Peruvian beers at the licensed onsite bar. This is a full-blown party.

Sponsored by The Pisco People beverages, some of the food vendors presenting their wares at the 2016 Melbourne Peruvian Festival include El Gaucho Argentinian Charcoal Grill, Inka Grill, La Tienda de Pepe and La Cholita Sabor Latino. You will also be able to sample Inca Kola, Peru's national soft drink and see demonstrations of how Pisco Sour is made before sampling that, too.

Entry to the 2016 Melbourne Peruvian Festival is free and everyone is welcome to attend. The Festival will be running from 12noon to 11pm on Saturday 16th July at the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, 101 Waterfront Way, Docklands. Park at Harbour Town Shopping Centre or in the city and catch the free City Circle tram.

Is the Peruvian Festival wheelchair accessible, and does it have unisex disabled toilets? And what about disabled people's parking?
Thank you
