A series of fun family friendly events

Moomba Festival is back for 2021 from 5-8 March in the CBD. It's not quite the same but there's still a lot of fun to be had over four days for the whole family. This year, the program has been reimagined into something that makes the event COVID-safe and enjoyable for everyone who comes along.

Alexandra Gardens, Sidney Myer Music Bowl and our city streets and buildings will be transformed into unique spaces with features like the ever-popular carnival, epic live shows including one with 2018 Monarch Jimmy Giggle, larger-than-life projections, kids entertainment, food trucks and much more family-friendly fun. There's something for everyone.

Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, Birdman Rally, water sports and nightly fireworks won't be going ahead, but are planning to return in 2022. You can apply for Birdman 2022 here.

Alexandra Gardens is the place to head to for Moomba Carnival rides and tasty food trucks. It's also the spot to catch epic sports events like skatepark competitions and basketball fun with NBL. If you want to gain FREE entry, be sure to book a session after you look up the Moomba Carnival program here. On the Friday you can catch The Deans of Soul, a critically acclaimed original soul band or Carissa Nyalu, a Yorta Yorta Dja Dja Wurrung singer/songwriter. That's just a taster - there's more.

For the first time ever, Moomba magic will be spreading its wings and heading Around Town beyond the river banks and into the city streets, laneways and building facades with larger than life projections, live street performances, Insta-worthy floral installations and lots more. There'll be a Busking Competition running from Sat to Mon which should be a lot of fun. You'll be able to catch some of the best up-and-coming acts and live street performances.

The iconic Sidney Myer Music Bowl has joined forces with Moomba to bring you shows from Jimmy Giggle, Cat Empire and Vika & Linda. Check out the program then purchase a ticket for some of the best local acts that has something for The Kids , while the adults can enjoy The Cat Empire and Kika & Linda.

Before you wander over to Moomba, be sure to read the COVID-19 policy for details on what you can do to help keep Moomba COVID-safe.
