Current Arts Opportunities

How can I get involved in our festivals and events?

Banyule has a terrific calendar of festivals and events through the year and as well as coming along and enjoying the celebrations there are great ways to get involved and be part of the program. We open a formal opportunity to express your interest in June-July but welcome ideas throughout the year. If you have an interest please email


Our festivals provide opportunities for food and market stallholders. Community Groups may wish to hold a stall at a festival and increase their profile in the community and/or fund raise, or hold a food or market stall. Should you wish to apply as an Olympic Village Makers Market stall at the Malahang Community Festival please contact

N.B.: Applications for stallholders at our 2017/18 Festival Season - including Malahang Community Festival, Carols by Candlelight, Twilight Sounds and Kids ArtyFarty Fest - have now closed. 

Local arts organisations, sporting clubs, individuals or cultural groups

Can display or sell their work as part of the markets, put on a performance on one of the many stages or give a workshop or demonstration.

Local businesses and stallholders

Can become involved through both in-kind and financial sponsorship. Arts, cultural or children's entertainment and activity businesses may be able to provide in-kind support through workshops and, or, performances. Other businesses can be involved through a scale of financial sponsorship agreements. Stallholder applications for each of our festivals are advertised on our website mid year or you can email and ask to be placed on the mailing list.

Arts and Leisure - get involved, Volunteer!

We are looking for volunteers interested in contributing their passion, time and skills to Banyule's many arts, culture, heritage, leisure and recreation activities.

  • Get involved in a sport or leisure activity
