Snow Fest Wins Global Recognition at Events Awards
27 May 2020
Springvale’s Snow Fest event has been recognised at the Global Ex Awards for 2020.
The Greater Dandenong Council event, which brings snow to the suburbs, won Best Municipal Event and Best Australian/Oceania Region Event.
Springvale Snow Fest first began in 2013 and now attracts in excess of 40,000 people each year.
Greater Dandenong Mayor Councillor Jim Memeti said the event had already won multiple industry awards, but to be recognised on a global scale was a huge coup.
He said award winners were selected from a total of 444 entries from 39 countries around the world.
“Springvale Snow Fest is one of our signature events in the City of Greater Dandenong,” Mayor Memeti said.
“It provides a net boost to the Springvale economy of $600,000 each year.”
The 2020 Springvale Snow Fest planned for July has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Mayor Memeti said the event would be back bigger and better in 2021.
