2016 – SunFest’s 40th Anniversary

2016 is SunFest’s 40th anniversary. SunFest takes place on Friday 18th March 2016 to Sunday 20th March 2016, and is held on the Village Green, at the corner of O’Shanassy and Brook Streets, Sunbury.

This year, SunFest commences on Friday 18th March 2016 with two of the premier talent events for our region, Sunbury Idol and Sunbury Can Dance. These events kick off our free, three day festival which is full of fun and entertainment for all ages. With thousands of people attending SunFest each year, we will again offer great attractions on our main stage and dance floor with local talent, and national acts, Battle of the School Choirs, award winning entertainers and children’s festivities. SunFest is well supported by our local traders, businesses, residents, the community and visitors from all around Melbourne and Victoria.

With 2016 being our 40th anniversary there will be many surprises as well as our ever popular Grand Street Parade, Reardon Amusement Rides and Carnival Games, Roving Entertainers, Walk and Run for Fun, a Health and Well Being Family Day, and much more.

Come along and join in all the fun with your family and remember that SunFest is run by the community for the community.

You can volunteer to join as a Friend Of SunFest and assist on the festival weekend, or come along to the AGM which will be held on Monday 18th April 2016 at the Sunbury Football Club starting at 7:30pm. Please contact SunFest at for more details.
