Antipodes Lonsdale Street Greek Festival 2020
Two days of Greek food and festivities in the Melbourne CBD.
One of Australia's largest Greek Festivals, Antipodes is a bit of an institution. It has taken over Lonsdale Street in the CBD with dancing, loukoumades and ouzo every year for more than three decades — and it shows little sign of slowing down.
This year, the festivities start on Saturday, February 29, with market stalls, live music, dance and cultural performances, and all of the delicious Greek food and drinks your stomach can handle. Sip an iced cold kafe kai frappe, enjoy a yiros, load up on sugary loukoumades, and unwind with a few Mythos beers and an ouzo or two.
The festivities continue on Sunday, with more food (and more ouzo). Also on the bill: a zorba till you drop contest, songs by top Greek performer Yiota Nega and a pastito cooking competition — as well as a cocktail party that'll have you dancing on tables.
Antipodes Lonsdale Street Greek Festival will run from 10am until late on Saturday and Sunday.
