The annual Rotary Eltham Festival is a highlight of the year in leafy Eltham and gets underway this year on the weekend of Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 November in Alistair Knox Park. Entry is free and all are welcome to join in the festivities!
Over two fun-filled days, you and your family can enjoy lively entertainment on the main, youth and community stages, lots of free activities for families, diverse food and drink options for all, a carnival and over 130 stalls to browse!
There are many highlights of the festival to look forward to such as a display by the Mini Moke Owners Club for car enthusiasts or Farmer Darryl's mobile farm for the children. Or for music lovers, a choice of three stages including rock, jazz and blues on the main stage and a showcase of young performers on the youth stage.
A free heritage bus will ferry families to and from the popular miniature train rides in Eltham Lower Park on both days of the festival.
Saturday afternoon is children's time on the main stage with clowns and magicians on the loose. Later in the evening, the headline act on the main stage - the popular Jimmy Cupples band – will keep things lively until the legendary fireworks light up the sky at dusk.
On Sunday the ever popular 'Have a Go' oval will feature local sporting and community groups, inviting you to try out some of their free activities. A special feature of the oval are free rides for small children.
With so much to see, do and explore, the Rotary Eltham Festival is a must visit event this spring!
