The Festival celebrates the contribution of the early Greek settlers and the planting of the olive trees at the Old Mildura Homestead, circa 1890s by Greek settlers and recognises their major contribution to the dried fruit industry. It is a way for the Greek community to share their traditional music, food and culture with the broader Sunraysia community. It also promotes the local olive and olive oil products and their benefits. This is a great day out to to try Greek coffee, cakes, foods and of course olives.

Presented by Mildura Arts Centre and The Australian Voices. A stunning a cappella choral-theatre experience by The Australian Voices. The first half of this show sets the scene with beautiful sacred choral works by Rachmaninoff, Bruckner and Beibl alongside contemporary Australian pieces like their YouTube hit The Facebook Song, Ulura and Sea Children. After intermission, the audience is taken into the choral-theatre mode with a 50 minute production called Moon. An epic song of love, Moon tells the story of the lonely Diana, her search for love and the twists of a very long-distance relationship. Tickets: Adult $25, Concession $20, Under 17 $10 and Groups 10+ $20. Doors open at 7pm for an 8pm show.
