EOI Glenferrie Festival 2018

EOI Glenferrie Festival 2018

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 7 months since the Glenferrie Festival.

The 2017 Glenferrie Festival was by far the largest and from the feedback, we have had the best Glenferrie Festival ever!

For the first time ever, the street from the railway tracks to Barkers Rd was full with stalls and people enjoying the festivities. Approximately 90,000 people attended the day that had over 220 stalls, 14 rides and many attractions.

Attendance over the last 4 years has nearly doubled but the Glenferrie Festival still retains that great relaxed local feel, where kids can run free and parents and friends can meet and enjoy the day, grazing and gazing along the street.

The theme for 2018 is “History”, we will explore the history of place with our attractions and entertainment. The Glenferrie Festival 2018 intends to travel from the pre-historic period to the Dream Time then to Colonization through to the present. 

We are now in our planning stage of the 2018 festival and we are seeking input from our local community and traders.

If you are interested in being involved in the planning and implementation of Boroondara's largest community event we want to hear from you.
