The Waterfront Festival is our chance to play by the bay!

Come down to the foreshore and enjoy two days of fun in the sunshine. You will hear the sound of local live music fill the lawns, the waft of Victoria’s best food trucks floating past your nose and stacks of fun activities for the family. This year you are in for a treat with not 1, not 2 but 3 stages at the festival!

Frankston City Council is thrilled to announce big voices, including Sneaky Sound System, Jack Jones, Andrew Swift, Gretta Ziller and Spirit Lines will headline the festival with many more artists! 

The Ventana Fiesta precinct which will be bringing colour and vibrancy to The Waterfront Festival in 2022, with a precinct full of intercultural celebrations, colour and cuisine, this is not to be missed.

With a larger footprint across the Frankston Foreshore we have jammed packed plenty of entertainment in to keep you occupied throughout the weekend, including:

  • Market stalls

  • Beach activities

  • The Dreaming Space family entertainment

  • Amusement rides and showbags

  • Live music and roving entertainment

  • Food trucks and garden bar

  • Free activities and much more!

We are ready to celebrate the return of The Waterfront Festival in 2022 with a bang, with our much loved fireworks display, filling the sky on Saturday at 9.45pm! Make sure you secure your spot for the best views of a sparkling display of fireworks set to dazzle and delight all.

Strap yourself in for a fun filled weekend of summer beach days and nights along the bay. Grab your family and friends and lock Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 February in the diary!
