About the Festival

Since 1981, The Yarraville Festival has been an integral Westside tradition, uniting the Inner West community to foster pride and inclusiveness. This annual event blends creative artists, designers, artisan stalls, activities, and gourmet delights, creating a vibrant community spirit and boosting the local economy.

Join us for a high-quality family experience featuring excellent food, entertainment, and stalls with quality products. Our vision is to be a renowned Inner West Community festival, celebrated for community participation and a unique village atmosphere. Come be part of the cultural diversity, industrious nature, and artistic vibe that defines the West!


Since 2019, the Yarraville Festival has proudly embraced a ‘plastic-free’ ethos, standing against single-use plastics. We encourage all festival patrons to join us in this eco-friendly initiative by bringing their own bags, collectively contributing to the reduction of soft plastics and fostering a more sustainable event.

In our commitment to environmental responsibility, we invite you to join us in fostering positive change. Your contribution can shape a more environmentally conscious festival experience, where every small action accumulates to create a significant impact. Together, let’s celebrate not only the rich history and vibrant culture of Yarraville but also recognize and uphold our collective responsibility to care for the planet we share.
