Lilydale Street Fair & Festival

“Lilydale Street Fair and Festival is an annual community event held on the first Saturday in December, celebrating the beginning of Summer in the township of Lilydale. The fair supports community values, seeks to bring pride and a sense of place to the residents of Lilydale, to showcase to visitors all that the town has to offer as the ‘Gateway to the Yarra Valley’, to enhance business visibility and opportunity, to promote shopping local, and to honour our heritage, multiculturalism, landscape, and indigenous community past and present.”
