Springvale Snow Fest brings the snow to the Suburbs
02 July 2019
The heart of Springvale will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland later this month as part of Snow Fest 2019.
Now in its seventh year, Springvale Snow Fest allows visitors a chance to enjoy an authentic snow experience without having to travel to the snowfields.
The event, which will be held on Sunday, 28 July, was recently awarded the 2018 Major Event of the Year Award from the Parks and Leisure Awards of Excellence program. It is now in the running for the national award.
Greater Dandenong Mayor Roz Blades said the festival had won a number of tourism awards and continued to draw large crowds each year.
“Springvale Snow Fest is a much anticipated event on Greater Dandenong’s calendar,” Mayor Blades said.
“It offers visitors a chance to experience all the fun of the snow without having to leave the city. Many people living in the City of Greater Dandenong have never visited the snow so this event is quite a unique experience for them.”
More than 80 tonnes of real snow will be brought from Mt Buller to Springvale for the festival.
The festival will also feature live entertainment, a snow dome with a circus workshop, costume making and magic show, rides, real husky dogs, ice sculpting and snow princesses.
This year’s Snow Fest will also have a strong emphasis on food with 28 different traders attending the event.
The night will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display at 6.50pm.
This year’s event sponsors are Mt Buller and Hit 101.9 The Fox. The event is also proudly supported by Bank of Melbourne and Bendigo Bank
Free parking is available at the number 8 car park off Balmoral Avenue
Springvale Snow Fest 2019 will be held on Sunday, 28 July from 12pm to 7pm.
