Celebrate Mooroolbark provides a unique opportunity to local businesses and organisations to publicise their enterprises at Mooroolbark’s growing annual family festival.

The 2017 Festival will take place at 7.30pm Friday 24th March and between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 25 March. It involves a growing number of schools, community groups and Mooroolbark residents.

We are pleased that many of our Premier, Major and Significant sponsors have continued on as sponsors since Celebrate Mooroolbark’s inception in 2002. Not only that, but some have asked how they might be additionally helpful – such is the perception that the Celebrate Mooroolbark festival provides a unique opportunity for promotion in the region. We are grateful, too, that our sponsors share our underlying philosophy of providing a low-cost festival that will provide an opportunity to celebrate our life together and to enhance our community networks.

If you’d like to join our team of sponsors, please contact our Sponsorship Coordinator, Cathy Grbac at cathy@celebratemooroolbark.com



Celebrate Mooroolbark festival would not be possible if it was not for the support of our wonderful sponsors. For more information please click on their names to be taken to their individual websites.
