Partnerships in flagship events such as GOWEST for Midsumma, Eat Drink Westside, part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, and the National Trust Heritage Festival, round out the calendar, adding value to residents by bringing unique experiences (and lots of visitors) close to home.
Council produces its own events, providing free summer music and film events in beautiful outdoor locations, and it has a role to play in the presentation of civic events such as Anzac Day, NAIDOC Week, Remembrance Day and the New Year’s Eve gathering.
