August 30 marks the anniversary of the founding of our wonderful city and we’re celebrating with a FREE Melbourne Day Family Festival and Concert at Docklands on Sunday, August 27, 2017 from noon till 3.02pm.
Yes, 182 minutes to mark 182 years of marvellous Melbourne!
There will be tours of the schooner Enterprize, face painting, roving entertainment, food trucks and birthday cupcake giveaways, along with a special Sunday Docklands Market along Harbour Esplanade from 10am – 5pm.
The all-ages concert stars a host of Melbourne-born music legends headlined by the ultimate 80s party band Absolutely 80s featuring Brian Mannix (Uncanny Xmen), Scott Carne (Kids in the Kitchen) and Ally Fowler
(The Chantoozies) performing hits and classics from the halcyon 1980s.
Melbourne Day aims to educate citizens on the founding of Melbourne on August 30, 1835, and to celebrate all that’s great about the city.
