We look forward to seeing you at the 13th annual Portarlington Mussel Festival in 2019.


To anyone who purchased a showbag on the day, please read this important information regarding the Q Train discount.

Thank you for supporting the 12th Annual Portarlington Mussel Festival on Saturday January 13th 2018, we hope you had a great time, rain, hail and shine!

We are already looking at ways to improve the festival and book amazing new acts for next year.

Over 10 ton of mussels were sold on the day and all mussel sellers were kept extremely busy. With 100 food and drink stalls, market stalls,  great local musicians playing across five stages, roving entertainers for the kids, plus art shows, cooking demonstrations and local beer and wine tastings, it was a great day out for the whole family! And all this for just $2!

Please note, the festival is smoke free, dog free, and BYO alcohol free.
