The Fete is officially opened by our Guest of Honour and takes place in the Melbourne Primary school grounds on Packhorse Road, directly after the procession.
Gates open at 12.00pm and close at 5pm.
Entry is by wristband only. An adult ticket is £3.00 on the day or £2.50 if purchased in advance. Under 16’s are £1 and under 2’s are FREE. Pre-ticket sales will start from June this year.

This year’s entry is by wristband and don’t forget that the fete flyer is a very handy Melbourne Business Directory. It’s like a mini-yellow pages for Melbourne and brilliant to stick on your fridge so you can easily find the numbers you need.
