One of Yarra’s much-loved cultural events, the Johnston Street Fiesta welcomes you back to celebrate Hispanic and Latin American culture in the heart of Fitzroy on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February.

The Johnston Street Fiesta turns 45 this year, celebrating the heritage, tradition, music and food of the world’s many Spanish-speaking countries. It’s the perfect opportunity to come out to Fitzroy and sample delicious food, live music and traditional dance performances and to reconnect with some of our favourite cafes and restaurants in the area.

Head down to Johnston Street for eating, dancing and enjoying some of the best local Hispanic and Latin American music.
