Check out Pako Festa and join over 100,000 people for a smorgesboard of food, folk dancing, parades, workshops, exhibitions and free activities. Visit the Bellarine Peninsula in June for the National Celtic Festival, boasting all the magic of Celtic music, dancing, pipers and drummers. 

Something for the foodies
