Presented by the Upwelling Festival Committee Inc – the Upwelling Festival is a free, one day event in Portland, Victoria which offers a fantastic and vibrant way for the community and visitors to celebrate the unique features of our beautiful coastal town.
The free festival began in 2009 with the inaugural event attracting thousands of locals and visitors.
The festival is held on the town’s foreshore and incorporates the traditional blessing of the fleet ritual to begin the fishing season.
A Street Parade, markets and live entertainment are just some of the fun activities. If your looking for a great family festival make sure you keep the Melbourne Cup weekend free and head to the Portland Foreshore on Saturday, 4th November 2017. The festival is always held the Saturday prior to the Melbourne Cup.
