The Village Feast will be held at The Glade in Inverloch. The entrance to the site is on Ramsey Boulevard, near the intersection of St Kilda Street.
The feast runs from 12 noon to 8pm on Saturday 18 November, and you’re welcome to enter at any time throughout the day. Note that pass outs will not be available. A full list of entertainment and timings will be published on the MFWF website closer to the event.
We recommend buying your tickets for the event in advance. If they don’t sell out beforehand, a limited number of tickets will be available for sale on the day. The ticket booth is located at the main entrance. The event is cashless and will take card sales only. Entry for children 12 and under is free but each child will still need a ticket to enter the site.
Guests will be given a wristband on entry; you’ll need to wear the band while you’re at the event.
