Meeniyan Garlic Festival

Food court at Knox Festival

The Meeniyan Garlic Festival in South Gippsland is Victoria’s major garlic event with lots of family-friendly activities, over 100 market stalls, regional wines and cheeses and of course - the star of the show - tons of garlic. There are cooking demonstrations and advice while for the family entertainment there are billy cart time trials, sack races, vintage cars and tractors, historic fire engines and more old-time fun. White Hat suggests you leave those members of the family who don't like garlic at home - they’re always dull company anyway.

Yarraville Festival

The Yarraville Festival has been operating since 1981 and has steadily grown into one of Melbourne's liveliest community festival and White Hat feels that the location helps add to the genuine village atmosphere. There is music across 7 stages from local professional and community performers, everyone will find something that they enjoy.. Kids of every age, from toddlers to teenagers, will hear music suitable for their age group, and a range of activities and rides are available for them. From jumping castles to carnival rides to bungee jumping, with many of the rides free.

The Yarraville Festival also features its annual market with plenty of stalls. Selling everything from vintage clothing, food and handmade gifts the market is a great opportunity for visitors to pick up a bargain.
