Winter in Fed Square

Winter is upon us, but don’t fret! We have a whole bunch of events that will tempt you to venture outdoors.

Take a look at our full program:

Winter Feasts: 1 June – 31 August

Fill your bellies with hot chocolate puddings, salty pretzels and mulled wine. Food trucks, markets and winter specials throughout the season.

CAGE by Robyne Latham : 11 June – 1 July

A unique exhibition displayed on the walls of the Fracture Gallery in the Atrium.

Winter Solstice Festival of Welcome: 24 June

Join us in Fed Square and welcome the winter solstice with a feast of live music including performances by icon of Australian Sudanese music Ajak Kwai. The night will also feature roving entertainers, interactive light installations and a unique bazaar with arts, craft and delicious food.

River Rink at Fed Square: 1 – 23 July

Get your skates on and take a spin around River Rink at Fed Square this winter.

Bring your family and friends along for a skate while enjoying a picturesque backdrop of the Yarra River and the Melbourne city skyline.

Winter Carousel: 1 – 23 July

Be part of the winter magic and take a ride round Fed Square on our beautiful carousel. A work of art in itself, kids and adults alike can ride on the magnificent horses and keep the cold at bay. Get a selfie with your favourite steed, or just avoid getting too dizzy!

Murrong Sticks: 27 July- 10 August

Through the use of video, animation and projections, the Real Blak Tingz (Arika Waulu and Gabi Briggs) aim to re-centre a collective narrative that has been erased by the perpetual dominant Australian colonial fantasy. The work will focus on the ‘digging stick’; a crafted wooden implement, sharpened at one end, which Aboriginal women use to dig for edible bush tucker.

Fed Square Live: 3-31 August

Taking Fed Square Live to the winter months for the very first time, Fed Square and ACMI present a series of 5 free concerts throughout August.

Leempeeyt Weeyn’: 5-20 August

The Indigenous Campfire extends a warm welcome from the traditional owners of this land and will be the centre of storytelling, learning and sharing over the winter season.
