Celebrate Australia Day at the Stony Creek Music Festival
Put on your dancing shoes, pack a picnic and bring your family down to McNish Reserve at Cruickshank Park in Yarraville this Australia Day for the third Stony Creek Music Festival.
Running from 2 – 7pm on Thursday 26th January, this free community festival will deliver a day of fun for the whole family with live performances by well-known musicians, children’s entertainment, a ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony, community stalls and food trucks.
The fantastic music line up is headlined by Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Gretta Ray who won the national Triple J Unearthed radio competition for bands and songwriters in 2016. She also won the prestigious Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition with her song "Drive" while still in high school.
Other performers include local groups The Yarraville All Stars with Rebecca Barnard, the Pearly Shells Big Band, Magic Tony Kids WB and Bouba.
Children’s workshops will run at the beginning of the festival and include a garden workshop in the Community Garden space along with a Henna stall.
There’s also loads of fun to be had in the playground at McNish Reserve which includes a 6-metre long, 3-metre high dinosaur called ‘Mimi the Muttaburrasaurus’, offering children a unique play experience, right in the middle of the festival.
