Greek Community of Melbourne to hold Lonsdale Street Greek Music Festival this weekend




The Greek Community of Melbourne annually hosts the Lonsdale Street Festival ‘Antipodes.’ This year due to COVID-19 we are unable to host such an event, but we are proud to be able to put on the ‘Lonsdale Street Greek Music Festival.’

This event is part of our Greece21 program which strives to celebrate the bicentenary of the Greek
War of Independence through a year-long program filled with various diverse events.

The Lonsdale Street Greek Music Festival, being held on the 20th and 21st of March at Lonsdale Street’s Golden Square Carpark, will feature food trucks, including Greek Street Food and St Gerry’s
Greek Donuts and Desserts as well as a bar.
