Moomba Festival - City of Melbourne
Every year, during the Labour Day long weekend in March, the renowned Moomba Festival warmly invites individuals into the city. It offers an opportunity to partake in the time-honored customs and enjoyable moments of Melbourne's most enduring and grandest community celebration.
Moomba, a festivity dedicated to Melbourne, has gained fame for its Moomba Monarchs, who preside over the traditional street parade held on Monday, the amusing Birdman Rally hosted on the Yarra River, the lively carnival held in Alexandra Gardens, and the nightly spectacle of fireworks.
Visitors are also encouraged to engage with an enriching music program featuring prominent performers and emerging local talents, participate in the exhilarating Moomba Masters waterskiing competition, take part in skate park workshops, contests, and enjoy captivating activities for children. All these events are offered without charge and span the entirety of the extended weekend.
