Australia's largest community festival is back this Labour Day weekend, and it's the perfect opportunity to make the most of Melbourne's still-warm March weather. From March 7 to 11, enjoy a jam-packed and mostly free program of family-friendly fun, including events like dance workshops, skate competitions, face painting and so much more.
It's the 70th anniversary of the festival, so to celebrate the milestone, a very special headline event will relive one of the most iconic moments in the festival's history. World-famous tribute act Bjorn Again will recreate ABBA's famous 1977 performance at Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Saturday, March 9. If that doesn't sound like a fantastic time, then we don't know what does.
Across the whole five epic days of festivities, stacked program of events will include the much-loved Moomba Parade; the hilarious Birdman Rally, where competitors hurtle themselves over the Yarra River in homemade flying devices; the Moomba Masters water sports competition; the Moomba Carnival; the Moomba Skate Park Program; and a variety of entertainers, performers, play zones, feature films and food and drinks experiences, plus so much more. Top it all off with nightly fireworks across the Melbourne skyline and you've got yourself one helluva party.
