About

The Mt Evelyn Street Party is a biennial event in one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets; on the outskirts of Melbourne metro, at the junction of the Dandenongs and Yarra Valley, is our beautiful and vibrant township.

Thank you, thank you, thank you…

The Mt Evelyn Township Group and its Street Party subcomittee say thank you! For performing at the Street Party in the heat of the day; driving a shuttle bus for hours on end; holding a stall as a fundraiser or as a small business; visiting Mt Evelyn from afar; ensuring locals could get a park at the IGA supermarket; for facepainting more faces than you can count; dancing your feet off on asphalt; or putting up with not being able to find a car park when trying to buy your Sunday morning newspaper. You are ALL AMAZING.

The next Street Party is in 2 years time, but while it’s fresh on all our minds we are keen to hear your thoughts. Please consider giving us your feedback now, using the form below.

Hosted by Mt Evelyn Township Group, the Street Party commenced in 2001 and has evolved into a feature event on the Yarra Ranges calendar, attracting people from all over.

At Mt Evelyn’s Street Party we celebrate the 1940s-50s in a way that you’ve never seen it before; with rock’n’roll dance demonstrations and workshops, musicians and roving performers, fashion contests, classic cars, school children on stage, memorabilia and the Mt Evelyn Pin Up Competition. There are competitions, free activities for children and a huge marketplace, as well as plenty of food and drinks both from stallholders and our superb local cafes.

Make a weekend of it and explore the Dandenongs and Yarra Valley regions, all on our doorstep.
