Summer is alomost here, and we all know that summer means several things – music, outdoor beers and Christmas.
This year Victoria Harbour hosts Christmas on the Green, which will take place over three Friday nights— 29 November, and 6 and 13 December from 4pm – 8pm. Featuring a pop-up bar by Mountain Goat Brewery, and some of Melbourne’s best live bands to provide a soundtrack to the pre-Christmas conviviality.
Christmas on the Green will also play host to a sustainable urban market. Melbourne artisans and producers will show and sell their wares in an atmosphere far away from the maddening crowds of the CBD. You’ll be able to wander past the stalls, and maybe even buy a last minute Christmas gift or treat yourself.
Possibly the most enjoyable way to do Christmas shopping!
Located on Victoria Green, enter from 807 Bourke Street, Victoria Harbour.
