Spring and outdoor festivals go hand-in-hand, and Melbourne has the packed calendar of events to prove it. Add another one to the list, with Collingwood's Peel Street getting in the action with their own fest — a new, free, day-long combination of music, arts, culture, food and markets.
Given that it's called the Peel Street Festival, there's no prizes for guessing where it'll be taking place from midday until 8pm on November 11. As for what's on offer, attendees can expect a community celebration boasting live sets from Aussie legend Archie Roach and blues group Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, an array of stalls serving up edible fare, and even a record fare.
Smith Street's The Grace Darling Hotel and Lazerpig will also be hosting live acts throughout the day, including Pillow Pro, Golden Helmet and India Grace. If you're eager for some spring fun in the sun — or beneath Peel Street's leafy trees — block out the second Saturday in November in your diary.
