32nd Lonsdale Street Greek Festival

     

     

    Melbourne’s biggest street party and longest-running Greek festival brings together some of the Australia’s most talented performers, dancers, chefs, cooks and competitors for a weekend of Greek-flavoured entertainment.

    Headlining the event will be one of Greece’s most popular singing sensations, Eleonora Zouganeli, on her first Australian visit.

    ABOUT THE FESTIVAL 

    Since 1987, the festival (formally known as Antipodes) has taken over the historic Greek precinct in the heart of Melbourne to celebrate the best of Hellenic culture.

    Over the years, thousands of performers and dancers have taken to the street to showcase the best in traditional and modern Greek dance, while hundreds of competitors have tested their endurance with Zorba ‘Til You Drop in the hopes to win a trip to Greece.

    Some of the best in Greek entertainment, including Glykeria, Giannis Haroulis, Michalis Xatzigiannis, Alkinnos Ionnidis, and Pandelis Thalassinos, have kept the crowd dancing in the street into the early hours of the morning.

    In 2018, the festival expanded, extending from Swanston St through to Exhibition St, offering three performance stages and more food and fun for people to enjoy.
