Victoria Street Lunar Festival 

The Victoria Street Lunar Festival on the 20th of January 2019 is a unique community festival that brings together over 80,000 Victorians who work and live in the City of Yarra, Melbourne and surrounding areas.

We will have many features and activities for all to enjoy; music and talent showcasing on our top stage, fun rides, games/sideshows and various children's activities and of course our traditional foods and cuisines.


Due to popular demand, we will be bringing back our Pho Eating Competition for all eager to participate. Victoria Street will be lined up and packed with businesses, charities and food stalls, courtesy of our beloved community.
This festival has become one of the most popular and recognised Lunar New Year celebrations in Melbourne, drawing crowds from all over Victoria. It is a wonderful opportunity for us, the Victoria Street Business Association (VSBA), to treat the community to a vibrant, colourful and culturally rich experience.


If you are invited to speak at our festival, we will contact you with further information about the festival and
