The Festival team would like to thank all of the local companies who have sponsored this years’ Festival for their support. Links to our sponsors’ websites are available on the SPONSOR page. Melbourne is fortunate in having the Festival and it helps put the town on the map, without support from local businesses we risk losing it. If any local businesses or residents have ideas for funding the festival please contact the Festival Office.
