Fawkner Festa is a free outdoor community event that celebrates and showcases the vibrant and diverse community of Fawkner. The event includes performances, community stallholders, food vendors, children's activities, and workshops.

Since its beginning in 2008, Fawkner Festa has become a highlight in the Merri-bek events calendar, as a way for residents to come together, and experience all that Fawkner has to offer.

2021 Fawkner Zine

Unfortunately, in 2021 we were not able to celebrate Fawkner Festa in person. But that doesn't mean we can't celebrate the vibrant community of Fawkner.

We have put together a collection of artworks, stories, recipes, comics, and children's activities made by the people of Fawkner, for Fawkner.

You can download the Fawkner Zine in the following languages:
