Even if you're not into AFL the sheer excitement of the AFL Grand Final weekend is something worth experiencing. To help celebrate Melbourne's biggest annual sporting event get involved with the free four-day AFL Footy Festival outside the MCG at Yarra Park. The festival brings together a huge range of activities including AFL player appearances, food and drink, kids activities and much, much more.

The Toyota AFL Grand Final Live Site will be the heart of the festival. Head to this area on Grand Final Day from 9am watch the big game on a huge screen. You're going to be so close to the action you'll be able to hear the 100,000 strong crowd cheer on.

Taste snacks from Melbourne’s best food trucks and restaurants at the Taste of Football area. Last year's offerings included food trucks by Biggie Smalls, Fancy Hank's, Happy Camper Pizza, Ghost Kitchen, and Taco Truck. After something sweet? Gelato Messina will be on scooping duty.
