Moon Lantern Festival

North Richmond Housing Estate.


The Moon Lantern Festival has existed for 27 years in North Richmond. Historically it has been a cultural event for local residents and school children to build moon lanterns and parade through the North Richmond precinct.


This year however, from new management and additional support from the State Government, The Moon Lantern Festival for the first time will run as a three-day music and arts festival, held in the North Richmond Housing Estate (corner of Lennox and Highett streets.)


An enormous program across multiple stages over 3 days. With 50% of the program originating from local community art projects. The other 50% will come from some of Melbourne’s finest musicians and performers.
Completely free to attend!
Friday 8th April 4:00pm – 10pm Saturday 9th April 12:30pm – 10pm Sunday 10th April 12:30 – 7:30pm
The 2021 Moon Lantern Festival is presented by the Belgium Avenue Neighbourhood Houses and The Village Festival. Supported by the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing through the North Richmond Community Capacity Building Initiative, Victorian State Government’s Multicultural Festivals and Events program, and the Federal Government’s RISE fund.
