Providing fun and excitement for all the family, from the thrills of the Moomba Carnival and the Magical Moomba Parade, to the crazy capers and toe-tapping entertainment on the main stage, it offers something to delight everyone.

Moomba Waterfest will be held at Alexandra Gardens and Birrarung Marr with the Carnival running through all four days of the festival, with rides, activities and games located on both sides of the Yarra River.

Expressions of Interest are now open for Moomba Festival Carnival and Catering, applications close on 1st September 2015.
