Babba at Port Mussel Festival 2016

Thanks for supporting the 10th annual Portarlington Mussel Festival in 2016

We are busy making plans for the 11th Annual Portarlington Mussel Festival on Saturday January 14th 2017, and we are mixing things up this year with all new acts, entertainment and food to keep everyone happy.

The 2016 festival was a great success with bumper crowds and lots of entertainment and a great assortment of stalls. Just look at how much fun BABBA had at the 2016 festival in the photo above! You can view the 2016 visitor Map and list of stalls and entertainment here.

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!

Check out some of the entertainment we have in store for the 2017 festival.
