Malahang Community Festival 2019


Malahang Community Festival is a celebration of the local community and all of its colour and vibrancy. This year’s festival was on Sunday 17 November, and featured an exciting line up of entertainment and activities.


The popular ABC TV personality Dirtgirl and her crew of energetic eco warriors performed on stage. There was an opportunity to meet and sing along with them.

Banyule Has Talent stage

Back by popular demand, the Banyule Has Talent stage showcased some of the local communities’ best talent.

Olympic Village Makers Market

Packed to the brim with local artists, collectors and trinket sellers, the Olympic Village Makers Market was perfect for some early Christmas shopping.

Sensory friendly chill out space

When sights and sounds of the festival got a bit overwhelming, this break space provided relaxation on comfy beanbags and quiet activities.

Youth zone

Banyule Youth Services will offer a range of activities including hair feathers, temporary tattoos and badge making.

Kids zone

Interactive activities included sensory play, fruit workshops, giant inflatable slide and make your own dream catchers.

Community arts project

We created a community mural banner for the festival! The project encouraged people to consider their individuality and celebrate diversity through playful engagement with art.

People were invited to spend some time painting a version of themselves on a large canvas banner alongside a community of other faces.
