Melbourne's iconic Greek precinct invites you for a weekend of cultural celebration.
This summer's event marks the 31st birthday of Melbourne’s biggest Greek street party, Lonsdale Street Festival, so 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 for the Zorba 'Til You Drop dance competition, and sign up for the Loukoumadomania for the most delicious eating competition of all... the winner will down the most loukoumades in one minute.
The two day festival features 60 food, drink and craft stalls alongside three stages of free entertainment, children’s rides and more.
