A jam-packed program of entertainment including live music and roving performers, market stalls, interactive workshops, activities for kids and adults alike.

What's On?


We have a packed mainstage and workshop program to keep you entertained from dawn to dusk (or at least from 10am each day!).

Listen to Australia’s best digeridoo player William Barton, swing along with Three Handed Beat Bandits, rock out to Melbourne’s Rudely Interrupted, sing along with our very own Frank Sinatra (in the form of Tony Dee) and channel your inner Karaoke King or Queen with Soulstice a cappella group.

The Voice veteran Tim McCallum will be here to fire up the crowds and for the movers and shakers, we have DefWill DJ, Bust A Move Dance Group, InsideOutside Dance Ensemble and more!


Food & Drinks

Craving a slice of North Carolina? From BBQ ribs, buffalo wings, chilli dogs, cheeseburgers and pies, Carolina Kitchen has all your favourite American eats covered together with the Mr America food stall.

Get your fix of The Bun Mobile’s legendary hand crafted steam buns, Ze Pickle’s hand pressed wagyu beef patties with maple smoked bacon, as well as other culinary delights including Dumpling Envy, How We Rolls gourmet rolls, Sweet Floz Churros, J’adore Les Crepes, The Popcorn Man, The Wrap Shack, Pipi Cucu, Krazy Lemon and more. The Live Large Bar will also be in full swing so drop by for a stout or rosé – whatever goes.





In between entertainment acts and delicious eats, wander through our collection of bespoke market stalls and treat yourself.

From candles and jewellery, through to leather goods and homemade sweet treats, we’ll have something for every taste. We’re hosting The Canvas Art Factory, Little Birdy Cakes, The Canvas Art Factory, Page Turner, Wheel Adventures, Rhuma Boutique and the Superheroes and More team.

Kid's To-Do's


Keep the smaller humans entertained with our range of free activities; from a bouncy castle to wear them out, face painting to transform them into Spiderman or Elsa or dance and drama workshops to channel their inner superstar.

There will also be a Liberty Swing, a scavenger hunt and much more to keep them interested. Plus, someone with two pointy ears and furry tail will be joining us on Sunday.
