The only local bus service affected by the festival is 781 which will turn from the Esplanade directly onto Barkly Street, instead of turning up Main Street, between 6am and 7pm (bus stops not serviced during this time are Esplanade/Townsend Lane, Esplanade/Mornington Park, Main Street/Ross Street)

Road Closure
Main Street in Mornington will be temporarily closed from Barkly Street to The Esplanade between 6am and 7pm

As it is an open public event, free for everyone to enter, we have had several incidents with dogs over the years and we ask that dogs be left at home. It is also uncomfortable for animals, as the streets are extremely crowded.

Most of the event is set out doors, but there are plenty on venues in the main street to take shelter if the weather is not kind. The event will go ahead rain hail or shine, unless it is considered dangerous.


Main Street Mornington will be closed for this event between Barkly Street and The Esplanade. People parking in this area of Main Street are advised to have their vehicle removed by midnight the night before the festival. Extensive parking on the day is available at the rear of Main Street and Mornington Central areas.

The Mornington Peninsula is an exciting place to visit, with many fun things to do for all ages. Visit the Mornington Courthouse Visitor Centre on the corner of Main Street and The Esplanade in Mornington for brochures and friendly advice and directions.
