Port Melbourne Neighbourhood Centre will be holding its biggest event of the year, the Port Melbourne Community Carnival, on 3rd March 2018.

Free attractions on the day include art and craft workshops, live music, face painting, balloons, jumping castle, animal nursery and much more. The Dig In Community Garden will host a low cost and gourmet sausage sizzle.

We will be providing locals the opportunity to nominate community members of all ages and businesses in the lead up to the event through our “Heart of the Port Awards“. Stay tuned for information on how to nominate. Award winners will be announced at the Carnival.

The Port Melbourne Community Carnival is funded by City of Port Phillip Local Festivals Fund and has been running for the last 12 years. Every year it’s bigger and more popular. We call it “an outdoor mini-festival in the heart of Port Melbourne”, accessible to the whole community, no matter what age, ability or income.

The Port Melbourne Community Carnival promotes creativity, active participation, citizenship, and environmental sustainability.

Port Melbourne Neighbourhood Centre organises its Carnival in partnership with many local organisations and performers, and promotes a range of activities including family & children’s activities, arts & crafts, movement, dance, live music and theatre.

Port Melbourne Neighbourhood Centre is a local non-profit, community-based organisation offering a wide variety of courses, activities and volunteering opportunities for the residents of the City of Port Phillip, and other areas.
