The Portarlington Mussel Festival is held from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM on the second Saturday in January every year in the picturesque village of Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria.
The next festival will be on Saturday 13th January 2018 and we’ll be one of the headliners , which we are pretty chuffed about. It costs just $2 to enter the Portarlington Mussel Festival which is then redistributed to local charities and community organisations for the benefit of the community.
Since its inception in 2007, the festival has grown year on year and now attracts around 30,000 people. Initially established to promote the Portarlington Mussel Industry, the festival now boasts a full day of activities including:
- Live entertainment
- Kids activities
- Cooking demonstrations
- Art & Photo exhibitions
- Classic car displays
- Food & Wine producers
- Products to try and buy!

Make a weekend of it and check out all that’s on offer it’ll be a great Festival!
