Something for all tastes at Broadmeadows Street Festival

Food trucks, fireworks and cultural entertainment are set to be highlights of the upcoming Broadmeadows Street Festival on Sunday 8 April.

Hume Mayor Geoff Porter said more than $25,000 in Council community grant funds ensured 18 not-for-profit groups were able to bring cultural entertainment to the festival.

“Hume is home to so much diverse talent and we are so proud to be able to support these community groups through our Broadmeadows Street Festival grants program,” Cr Porter said.

“As a result of these grants, the festival will be brought to life with everything from Turkish food tastings, through to Afghan dance demonstrations and short film screenings.

“The colourful Broadmeadows Street Festival will also feature a variety of Melbourne’s hottest food trucks, carnival rides, market stalls, Knafeh (The Bearded Bakers) and fireworks.

“Clear the calendar for Sunday 8 April; this is one event you can’t miss!

“Come and enjoy a day full of delicious food, free entertainment and stunning fireworks to end a big day.”

Broadmeadows Street Festival will take place on Sunday 8 April 2018 between 1pm and 7pm, along Tanderrum Way, Broadmeadows.
