This year’s festival will have a wide variety of music and entertainment for everyone’s tastes, from our headliner act to roving kids entertainment.

There will be many stalls serving delicious mussels and other food, local Bellarine beer and wine, and soft drinks for thirsty kids.

Down at the pier the mussel boats will be in action selling fresh mussels to take home. Port Phillip Ferries will also be putting on a mussel cruise at 12:30 where you can learn more about the mussel industry. Book here.

Plus, all day, you can check out the hourly cooking demonstrations in Rie’s Kitchen in the cooking tent.

The Mussel Festival Art Show attracts artists from all over the Bellarine who display and sell their work in Parks Hall on festival day. So make sure you pay them a visit and maybe pick up a new piece of art for your wall. With over 30 local artists exhibiting, the show provides visitors with a diverse range of works in a variety of mediums and styles and is a must-see. Both the Port Snappers and the Port Arts Network add a great touch of colour to the festival.
