For the Community
Sunbury Community Festival (SunFest) has been a constant for the local community: with a history spanning over 48 years, we take immense pride in being the largest community-run festival in Melbourne’s North. Every year, we bring together a vibrant and diverse community, attracting over 30,000 attendees who come from all corners of Victoria. Over the years, we have become more than just an event; we have grown into a cherished tradition that brings people together to create lasting memories.
SunFest is a two-day, free-to-enter community festival. SunFest offers a broad range of food trucks, community groups, local traders, businesses, two days of entertainment on the Main Stage, a Grand Street Parade on the Saturday afternoon, Fireworks and Torchlight Parade on the Saturday night and on Sunday we hold the SunFest Colour Run. We have stalls and carnival rides over both days. With so many aspects to the festival there is something for everyone!
SunFest is run solely by volunteers. Volunteers serve as the lifeblood of SunFest, infusing the event with their unwavering passion, dedication, and commitment. Their invaluable contributions are the driving force of SunFest. From event logistics to community engagement, volunteers invest their time and resources, ensuring the festival's seamless operation and vibrant atmosphere.
No matter what your capabilities are, we look forward to welcoming you into the SunFest Family!
