Melbourne's famous Greek precinct invites you to a weekend of cultural celebration
This summer's event marks the 33rd birthday of Melbourne’s biggest Greek street party, the Antipodes Festival (formerly known as the Lonsdale Street Greek Festival). Make your way down to Melbourne CBD's unofficial 'little Greece' (we would argue Oakleigh is the more official one) for two days of great Greek street food, traditional dances, and live music performances from local and international Greek acts.
As usual, the event will see the city's biggest Greek chefs turn it on for live cooking demonstrations. Bring your dancing shoes for the Zorba 'Til You Drop dance competition, and the Pass the Pastitsio cooking competition where judges will be awarding the best Greek baked pasta dish.
The two-day festival features 90 food, drink and craft stalls alongside three stages of free entertainment, children’s rides and more.
