After a hiatus in 2018, The Village Festival will return to Edinburgh Gardens
Friday 25 to Sunday 27 October 2019
The Village Festival in Edinburgh Gardens is an annual institution and a wonderful meeting place for Melbourne’s artistic community.
The festival is fundamentally an experimental artistic playground in which new work, new collaborations and new artforms are explored.
It is also an extremely fun and welcoming place to be.
The Village Festival is delighted to announce the fresh new energetic team who will be creating and curating The Village Festival in 2019:
Timothy Christopher Ryan
Expect a diverse festival with new special events including a sunset ritual, a fashion parade, explorations in alternate reality, a focus on food, myriad ways to encourage your creativity, queer delights, a dedicated kids program, plus all sorts of music, theatre and installation art… all to be shared with 10 000 of your closest friends.
Please watch a highlights video of the 2017 Edinburgh Gardens Festival here.
More information about past incarnations of the festival can be found here.
Thanks to our supporters City of Yarra.
Creative Victoria and Australia Council both turned down our funding applications for Edinburgh Gardens 2019, so this festival is in serious need of some financial assistance. Can you help?
