The Village Festival in Edinburgh Gardens 27-10-2017 ~ 28-10-2017

October 27 @ 6:00 pm - October 29 @ 8:00 pm

Entry by donation

The Village Festival is part carnival, part village fair and part arts festival. Enter through the impressive fa├žade and discover an alternative utopian world chock-full of of music, theatre, visual art, installations, puppetry, story-telling, cooking, workshops and a whole lot more.

This year The Village has a special focus on works by young, emerging and experimental artists. Students from Fitzroy High School and Alice Miller School in Macedon lead Maze of Motions, a creative collaboration looking at the depth and complexity of our emotions. The festival also features a preview performance of The Garden of Sorrows: Snuff Puppets’ giant puppet adaptation of the illustrated book of fables by John Hughes and Marco Luccio in which iconic Australian animals take on human qualities.

The Main Stage music program will feature the best of Melbourne’s emerging and established musos including Masco Sound System, The Number Nineteens, Copperhead Brass Band. Hello Tut Tut, Low Down Big Band, All Day Fritz and Chaos Magnet.

The World Kitchen is the imaginary love-child of Nigella and the Swedish chef. This fun, performative food stage invites chefs and home cooks from around the world (and around the corner) to share their stories about food, all whilst cooking scrumptious dishes to taste.

As always, The Village encourages active participation. There will be myriad opportunities to get creative, including the large-scale participatory work The Grand Experiment, creative workshops and stalwarts like So You Think You Can Interpretive Dance and 10 Minute Dance Parties.

No pre-bookings. Entry by donation.
