After a two-year hiatus, the most exciting event in Burwood is back!

Burwood Festival is Council’s premier community event, attracting thousands of visitors to our area as the iconic Burwood Park comes alive with music, food and festivities at the biggest Burwood spectacle of the year.

Burwood Festival began as a Centenary celebration in 1974, before becoming a yearly event in 1985. The Festival draws upon local businesses and talent to deliver a huge boost to our economy, and to showcase the vibrancy and energy of our fantastic area.

Council is pulling out all the stops to make this year’s celebration an absolute show stopper!

To make 2022 the most memorable Burwood Festival yet, this year there will be a collection of Council events, activations and programs held throughout the whole month of October, alongside the traditional festival day on Sunday 9 October.

October will see Burwood transformed into a festive wonderland, with food trucks, displays, roaming performers, stage acts and amusement rides, as well as a focus on hands on activities and family-friendly entertainment. For the first time, arts and crafts market stalls will also be included in the Festival program.
