Frankston City’s major event season has just been announced, with a huge line-up of entertainment on offer. Be sure to note these dates because you won’t want to miss out!
To start off the season is The Mayor’s Family Picnic on Sunday, September 9, at the Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve, kicking off at 11am with free family lawn games and activities including face painting and live entertainment to keep the kids happy and busy. A fantastic array of food stalls will provide tasty treats while traders in the know give free advice on what to see and experience in your own back yard.

Food trucks are all the go from October 10-14 on the Frankston Waterfront, and you’re in for some gourmet gustation. Returning for the third year in a row, the Food Truck Park presents Seaside Street Food Festival and serves up fresh international flavours, stellar live entertainment and an ambience that will transport you to anywhere your tastebuds are travelling. Graze your way through this aromatic and flavourful day with friends and family in a simply stunning Frankston locale.

Coming off the back of the Seaside Street Food Festival is Pets’ Day Out on Sunday, October 14, from 10am-3pm at Ballam Park, where you have the chance to speak to Frankston City Council’s animal management team about responsible pet ownership while you enjoy a bevy of free activities. There’s a kids’ photo booth and colouring in, prizes and giveaways, and all pets are welcome as long as they are vaccinated, on leads or securely contained.

The festive season begins with Frankston’s Christmas Festival of Lights on Saturday, November 24, in Davey St from 5pm onwards. Watch Santa’s grand arrival and meet him in his house, get started on your Christmas shopping while enjoying the culinary delights in the Gingerbread Land Festival Dining and watch the tree-lighting ceremony and fireworks display at 9.15pm.

Are you there yet? If not, then listen to this: the mighty Magic Dirt are re-forming after a 10-year hiatus for a massive concert in Frankston Park on Saturday, December 8, featuring Spiderbait, Killing Heidi, Bodyjar, Superheist, Hotter Than Hell (pictured) and more. Tickets for this 18+ rockfest are $79 and now on sale, so time is ticking if you want to launch into the festive season with a big, thumping bang.

For more information on these events and to see what Frankston City has lined up ready for 2019, head to or follow Visit Frankston on Facebook (visitfrankston) and Instagram (VisitFrankston) — as a teaser, The Waterfront Festival in February is going to be a cracker!
