The City of Melbourne is delighted to welcome you to a colourful weekend of fun, food and frivolity for the 68th Moomba Festival.

Melburnians have earned this celebration. Be enthralled by the daring antics of the Birdman Rally, marvel as the floats and Moomba Monarchs glide by in the iconic parade, and cheer on the Moomba Masters skiiers competing on our mighty Yarra River – Birrarung.

For families, there are many free and exciting activities, including box sculptures, Aboriginal dance performances and the ever-popular silent disco.

We thank everyone involved in delivering the festival for bringing us cheer and ensuring we remain the undisputed events capital of Australia. Moomba is Melbourne’s festival – the people’s festival – and it’s time to celebrate together.
