The Portarlington Mussel Festival is held in January every year in the picturesque village of Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria.
All money raised is diverted directly back into the local community. The festival is run entirely by volunteers.
Since its inception in 2007, the festival has grown year on year and now attracts around 30,000 people. Initially established to promote the Portarlington Mussel Industry, the festival now boasts a full day of activities including:
- Live entertainment
- Kids activities
- Cooking demonstrations
- Art & Photo exhibitions
- Classic car displays
- Food & Wine producers
- Products to try and buy!
Plus plenty of mussels!!!!
We are proud of our community festival which is run solely by volunteers for the benefit of the community.
