Submit your extraordinary event ideas for the 2020 Festival

Each year we invite Victorian businesses and individuals to take a part in shaping MFWF’S program of events.

What is that spectacular, thought-provoking or just plain wild event you’ve always wanted to run? Let’s make it happen.

We're looking for unique and innovative concepts that embrace the strength and diversity of Victoria’s food, drink and hospitality landscape.

MFWF will be curating a program in 2020 designed to maximise visibility for the very best events. Some Festival favourites will remain, but this is the year to change things up. We’re tightening up the number of events on our program, so the higher the quality of the submission and the pictures supplied, the better chance it has of attracting media coverage and being featured across MFWF digital channels.

How to apply

Submit your event online through our Event Management Space. Events are selected based on their merit and ability to meet MFWF’s Key Selection Criteria, particularly how they deliver extraordinary experiences not readily available at any other time of year.

Download the 2020 Event Organiser Participation Pack for all you need to know about running an event in Melbourne for the 2020 MFWF.

Event submissions are open now and close on 9 September 2019.
