Sustainability Festival

Sustainability Festival

The City of Greater Dandenong’s Sustainability Festival is returning to Dandenong Market Sunday 7 April for its 6th year in a row.

This free event is a rewarding, fun-filled day with live performances, activities, music and displays for all ages! Families can expect to receive tips on how to save money and the planet, easy ways to cut waste and turn trash into treasure, healthy cooking demonstrations and how to grow your own edible garden.

Enjoy some live music and kids performances, pedal power your way to a free smoothie or follow Dr Popoff through a caravan of guts to discover what is making Gutzy’s tummy so sore.

Ride your bike and get it pimped out for free! Each person who rides to the Festival will receive a free bike service and full bike pimping.

This year the Festival is all about reducing waste, especially single-use plastics, so the first 100 patrons to bring their reusable cup to the Market Tavern on the terrace will receive a free small hot drink; and everyone who brings along their reusable shopping bags can go in the draw to win a Dandenong Market voucher.

Head home inspired to take action with simple tips and free give-aways after a fun and exciting day.

The event will also feature:

  • Free face painting and children’s activities
  • Free pedal powered smoothies
  • Sustainable product stalls
  • Free take-home veggie plantings
  • Live performances and music
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Experts on hand including sustainability specialists and Council’s environmental staff

For more information please contact Sustainability Officer Chamomilla Hill on 8571 1000.

Location: Dandenong Market, the Terrace and surrounding car park, Corner Clow and Cleeland Streets, Dandenong

This event is part of What’s on – Autumn. For more information visit greaterdandenong.com/whatsonautumn

The City of Greater Dandenong is proud to be a City of Celebration.
