Moomba Festival 2018

Moomba Festival 2018

Moomba, Australia’s largest free community festival will burst to life this Labour Day Weekend (9 – 12 March) with free events for all ages along the banks of Melbourne’s Yarra River.

The vibrant Moomba Carnival will kick off on Friday night with the return of the Friday Ride pass which includes unlimited rides.

Festival favourite the Birdman Rally will be back with competitors plunging into the Yarra River for charity from 11.30am on Sunday 11th March.

The Moomba Parade will bring a flurry of colour and movement to St Kilda Rd with community designed floats, cultural performance groups, school participants and dance troupes joining the Moomba Monarchs in celebrating Moomba 2018 (Monday 12 March, 10.45am).

All fun and free courtesy the City of Melbourne

Every Labour Day long weekend, Moomba brings Melburnians together to share in the vibrancy and spirit of our much loved city.

A celebrated part of the Melbourne events calendar for 60 years, Moomba will be back with an exciting program of events and family entertainment, making Melbourne the ideal place to be for the Labour Day long weekend.

Held over four days, the festival attracts more than one million visitors to the sun-soaked banks of the Yarra to share in the vibrancy and spirit of our much loved city.

Love Melbourne, Love Moomba!

A Melbourne staple, take your place on the sidelines as the vitality and energy of Moomba is brought to life through the spectacular Moomba Parade. Starting near the Shrine of Remembrance and finishing near Linlithgow Avenue, the lively procession brings a flurry of colour and movement to Melbourne's St Kilda Road.
