This summer, the Festival Village once again takes its place in the heart of the city at Hyde Park.

An oasis of arts, eats, beats and other treats, it’s the perfect pre-show or post-show hang-out.

With a mix of free and ticketed events, check out The Famous Spiegeltent, The Aurora Spiegeltent, a week of family shows and street artist Maser’s giant art installation Higher Ground.

Festival Village is also the place for your daily workout fix. Lululemon athletica brings Festival-goers complimentary 1 hour yoga classes in Hyde Park.

The final week of the Festival is Family Week in the Village: a jam packed fun program with a range of FREE activities to suit every age. If you are looking for a day out with the kids, we have the last week of the school holidays covered.

Festival Village is the go-to destination for pre or post show eats and treats! Restaurants include Bar Pho, Harvest Trader & Co, Puntino Trattoria, Bite Size Delights, Bar Coco Milk Bar, Jafe Jaffles, the Village cheese shop Cheesesmith, and Porteno and Gelato Messina have joined forces to create The Double Down Diner.

Early evenings to late balmy nights, the Festival Village opens its doors to bathe you in the rhythms of summer.
