Moomba proudly beams with Melbourne charm. Sixty-three years on, Moomba is wise with age, steeped in tradition, but undoubtedly young at heart – just like the city it calls home.
Moomba respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which the festival takes place.
Lord Mayor's welcome
The City of Melbourne proudly presents Australia's largest free community festival Moomba.
The uniquely Melbourne program of activities and events runs from 10 to 13 March on the banks of the iconic Yarra River at Birrarung Marr and Alexandra Gardens.
Highlights of the family-friendly program include the Moomba Parade with its artistic, community-inspired floats and the wacky Birdman Rally.
Moomba Festival showcases the talents of local performers and the hospitality of our traders. The Moomba Masters' world-class watersports, and the pro scoot, skate and BMX competitions are also favourites in our sports-mad city.
Please join me to celebrate Melbourne's diversity and creativity at Moomba 2017.
