Australia Day Festival

Australia Day Festival

Australia Day is a significant celebration for the Greater Dandenong community with over 11,000 local residents expected to enjoy the festival with family, neighbours and friends.

With residents from more than 150 different nations, Australia Day means different things to different people. We also acknowledge that this day can be a difficult day for some members of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and we are respectful of that. Council sees this day as a chance to celebrate what connects us – a celebration of our similarities and our differences.

Our Australia Day Festival takes place in Dandenong Park and we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of this land and honour them in our festivities. Our event will include the traditional Welcome to Country and a sacred Smoking Ceremony.

The award winning Australia Day Festival will be held in Dandenong Park, corner of Pultney and Foster streets on Sunday 26 January 2020

 

Come down to the Australia Day Festival and check out the FReeZA Youth Stage.

FReeZA committee will host a variety of live performances from singer, DJ and dance crews, plus much more.

  • Youth Stage - Main stage: 4.30pm – 6.30pm
  • Youth Stage - Busker stage: 7pm – 8.40pm

The FReeZA Committee will also be offering free airbrush tattoos.
