Why you NEED to be at Taste of Melbourne this year!

This year, Taste of Melbourne has a brand spanking new home (at the MCG’s Yarra Park) and they are serving up the perfect curation of all of the above… Put simply, you need to be at the festival this year and you need to snap up your tickets asap, because there’s limited availability! #rundontwalk

Prepare for a feast of all the senses. With world-class collaborations from our city’s favourite chefs, artists and musicians, Taste of Melbourne will once again bring a collision of art, entertainment and food to the Victorian capital.


Why you NEED to be at Taste of Melbourne


During the day, you can wander through laneways of more than a hundred artisan producers , or gather on the lawns for the ultimate gourmet picnic. At night, be illuminated under the canopy of glittering and neon lights, as you enjoy a feast of delicious dishes. We guarantee it will be the perfect sparkling foodie night out with your squad!

BIG NEWS! For the first time, four contemporary Australian artists – Ash Keating, Josh Muir, Geoff Nees and Evie Cahir – will collaborate with top chefs as part of the innovative CoLabs program.

An iconic dish and limited edition artwork created by the four pairs of collaborators will only be available to buy at the festival. Creative CoLabs represents the new vision for Taste festivals to embrace Melbourne’s creative vision, encourage collaborations in cuisine and culture, and celebrate good taste in its many manifestations.

There will be special release tickets available this week to celebrate the CoLabs program, be sure to book yourself a Creative CoLab Bundle (giving you entry to Taste + a drink + a limited edition tote bag) – BOOK HERE.
