Warrandyte Festival

The Warrandyte Festival has been a staple of this country town since 1977!

Come to Warrandyte to celebrate this wonderful festival featuring a Billy Cart Derby, Parade, live music, kids activities and more.

Warrandyte Festival, 2024 Parade Dates, Market & Program, Melbourne

The Warrandyte Festival is held at Stiggants Reserve – a pocket of community parkland fringed by the Yarra River. Bright with artistic endeavours, it is a champion of “homegrown” and “hand made”. It remains refreshingly free from commercialism after more than 40 years.

The festival is all about family fun: concerts, waterslides and whacky races. A billy cart derby, kids’ market, battle of the bands, film feast and so much more.

Free to all, the Warrandyte Festival attracts about 10,000 people on a fine weekend. With scrumptious food, incredible music and the enduring appeal of Warrandyte’s charm and community spirit, it’s not hard to see why!

Driving via the Eastern Freeway is best for getting to Warrandyte from Melbourne. Street parking may be limited during the festival, and Yarra Street will be closed to traffic from the Harris Gully Road roundabout to the Bridge roundabout during the Parade on Saturday.

On Saturday 20 April, Yarra Street will be closed to traffic (including buses) between the Kangaroo Ground Road bridge and the Harris Gully Road roundabout, from approximately 9:30am until 11am for the Parade.

During the Festival, street parking is free but may be limited in the local streets surrounding Stiggants Reserve. It’s encouraged you to car pool, walk, ride or take public transport. If driving, park in designated parking spaces only, as parking inspectors will be in the area during the event.

If you are looking to use public transport, take buses:

  • 906 from the City
  • 364 from Ringwood Station
  • 578 or 579 from Eltham Station to Warrandyte.

Please note that the Warrandyte Festival is a no-smoking event across the entire Reserve all weekend. So come down to Stiggants Reserve, Yarra Street, Warrandyte, for a great weekend of fun and live music.

  • Hello Organizers,
    I am applying for a market stall site at the Warrandyte Festival. For many years I have had a stall each Warrandyte Community Market/ now Warrandyte Riverside Market. My goods have been received most enthusiastically and very much suit the Warrandyte community.

    In my stall I have natural fiber, (including cotton, linen, silk and alpaca,) clothing and accessories. These items feature exciting and elegant fabrics and designs.

    If possible I would like a double site. Could you please let me know if it is possible to have a site and how you would like payment to be made.

    Thank you
    Best regards
    Elaine (Blueberry Laine)
