The Portarlington Mussel Festival has grown year on year and now attracts around 30,000 people.

Initially established to promote the Portarlington Mussel Industry, the festival now boasts a full day of activities including live entertainment, kids activities, cooking demonstrations, art & photo exhibitions, classic car displays, food & wine producers, products to try and buy and plenty of mussels. 



Soul Sister Swing entertaining the crowds. 


Fun entertainment for all ages!


Walk the famous Portarlington Pier where the mussel boats pull in to unload.

Wine + food. Makes most people happy.



Food trucks, freshly cooked seafood and local businesses are busy keeping everyone fed.

I particularly love this festival because I can walk there from my home in 10 minutes!!
