A celebration of community, culture and cuisine is on the horizon with Flavour Fest returning to Frontier Park in Aintree on Saturday, March 2.

From noon to 9pm the free event will include tasty bites from Victoria’s most popular food trucks and a stellar line up of music artists who will have the crowd dancing into the sunset.

For those over 18, Flavour Fest will have a dedicated Beer Garden showcasing local boutique brewers, wine distillers and artisan spirits from Melbourne’s west.

Families will find plenty of fun at the ‘Play Zone’, with a sustainability-focused immersive art experience by the Slow Art Collective, roving artists and plenty of other interactive activities, a Wellness by Woodlea area where guests can try activities that encourage mindfulness and feel-good vibes, a giant Ferris Wheel and multiple rides, and the event will conclude with an epic firework display.

Melton mayor Kathy Majdlik said Council is pleased to be partnering again with Woodlea to deliver a quality family-friendly festival.

“Flavour Fest is a chance for residents to celebrate what they love about where they live and for visitors to get a taste of what the west has to offer,” she said.

“Not only is this going to be a fantastic day out for everyone, but it is an opportunity to highlight and support some of the west’s amazing boutique food businesses and talented artists.”

Woodlea Project Director Matthew Dean is excited to see Flavour Fest

grow to new heights in 2024.

“Flavour Fest is a much-loved and anticipated event in the Woodlea calendar. We’re looking forward to welcoming some of Australia’s most esteemed musicians and hospitality businesses to Woodlea, and showcase everything our growing community has to offer,” he said.
