May 4, 2019 1pm – 7pm
Rides, attractions, entertainment and a Star Wars celebration in your Village!
It’s back! The businesses of Burwood Village are hosting a super Autumn Fiesta celebration for you, and with you, with support from Buxton Real Estate, City of Boroondara, Beaurepaires and Mamma Knows East.
In the Beaurepaires Young Family Fun Zone (Beaurepaires carpark) you will find free face painting and crafts at the Burwood Neighbourhood House stall, an animal farm and jumping castle. Chat to Boroondara Neighbourhood Watch, check out a police car or the Beaurepaires ute.
Lions Club Boroondara Op Shop will be running a sausage sizzle and operating a book stall (weather permitting). Don’t forget to try your hand at the monster putting comp run by Burwood Drummond Golf. Gold coin donation to enter and all money raised is donated to White Ribbon Australia. WIN: Guess the number of hazards (nails/screws) in the jar. Grand Prize $100 gift card and a free Tyre Rotation and Wheel Alignment.
Myrniong Street will host carnival rides including cha cha, super slide 4 and chair-o-plane (a $5 wristband gets unlimited rides), the Kids Entrepreneur Market and amazing community activities including a sports circuit from Ready Steady Go Kids, chocolate toss run by Alfred Road Kindergarten and soccer skills fun from Soccajoeys. WIN: Guess the number of lipsticks in the jar and you can win a kids pamper party worth $275 with Evodia Beauty Care.
Melton Ave will host the Buxton Entertainment Area, a Fiesta hub stage with a program of free entertainment all day (see below). The stage area also sports tables and chairs for you to chill out, grab a drink & snack or meal from a nearby cafe and enjoy your Village. Prohibition Food and Wine will be running an All Day Mornington Brewery Beer & Cocktail Bar and will also have a Prohibition Food Stand selling their small plates – so you won’t have to go far!
On Toorak Rd, Buxton Real Estate will play host to Bricks 4 Kidz building activity – Star Wars style – and while you’re there you can enter their free raffle to win one of their exclusive Camberwell themed Monopoly boards! Drop by Pet House Grooming & Boutique and pick up a free rawhide treat for your four-legged friend between 1pm – 5pm and swing by The Gents Cave Barber to get your $20 mohawk during the Fiesta (for kids and adults).
Boroondara Cares and local Rotarians will be running a stall where families can learn all about bees. Looking for treats? Then make sure to stop at Wattle Park Primary stall selling homemade cakes, biscuits and slices from the families of the school. Parents should also make Burwood Cellars a stop on the map, for delicious in-store tastings at the best wine store between 1pm -6pm.
And, of course, as it’s May the 4th – we have to celebrate! We will have Star Wars characters roaming the streets from 1.30pm and a 3D photo backdrop for cool space station pics. Make sure to drop by and get a shot as one lucky photo on the day will become the cover star on the next issue of Burwood Bulletin!
We also have best dressed prizes for kids and pets — so bust out your best Darth, Kylo Ren, Rey, Obi Wan or Yoda look! We’re awarding $100 gift vouchers (to be spent in Burwood Village) for best girl (goodie and baddie categories), best boy (goodie and baddie categories) and best pet. Best pet winner receives a $100 voucher for grooming from Pet House Grooming & Boutique.

Our proud supporters:
Burwood Village Kids Entrepreneur Market
After two hugely successful years, the Kids Entrepreneur Market is back again for the Burwood Village Autumn Fiesta on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
Budding young entrepreneurs aged between 8 and 16 years are invited to submit applications to take part. Selected stallholders will have three glorious hours to sell to a ready-made audience of festival-goers!
Best of all, it isn’t just the money to be made on the stalls – we also offer cash prizes of $350, $200 and $100 to outstanding business owners. Our business and marketing experts will come by to say hello, chat with you about your business and judge your stall based on:
- the initial impact of your business (first impressions count!)
- product presentation
- stall presentation
- your business plan
- customer feedback
The announcement of prizes will be made on the main stage at 4.45pm
‘We’re looking for kids with drive and initiative to have a go at kicking off a little business selling their own products or services. This is no run-of-the-mill garage sale, in fact there is no trash and treasure to be seen – these kids have some amazing business ideas’

Application Timeline – 2019
- Applications in by March 21
- Announce April 4
- Payments due April 11
- Market May 4
Where – Myrniong Street in Burwood Village – off Toorak Road in Camberwell
Timing – Market runs from 1:00pm – 4:00pm, with setup from 12pm and dismantle 30 mins after
Cost – $20 per stall – payable on confirmation of booking
- First, this is not a trash and treasure market. You can’t just pack some old stuff in a box and sell it off (but recycled and re-purposed goods OK). You have to make something – or come up with a service you think people will pay for.
- Second, you can’t sell food or drinks. Unfortunately there are just too many regulations to make that possible.
- And finally – you need to be aged between 8 and 16 years to have a stall at the market. Individuals or teams of 2 can participate.
We’ll be selecting businesses based on great ideas, that will work together to give us a fantastic mix of stalls and market (not on a first in – first served basis). If we have multiple people wanting to sell the same thing, we’ll rely on the information on the application forms to help us choose – so tell us lots of details. We’ll also make sure there’s an even mix of ages, so if you’re a mini tycoon don’t worry – you won’t be competing against big kids for a spot.
Love to get involved but not sure what to do?
Arts & crafts, greeting cards, jewellery, hair accessories, costumes, candles, pictures, plants, fresh flower posies, woodwork, models, repurposed items. Please NO MORE applications for stalls selling slime – we already have more than enough of these 🙂
Face painting, babysitting, gardening, computer services, dog walking, kids’ party games / characters, coaching, pet feeding, hair braiding, music, singing, car washing.
You can have more than one product/service at your stall as long as everything fits on the 1.2 m table space.
Brainstorming ideas for stalls
- Lots of families come to the Festival – and when you think ‘families’ think: kids, pets, gardens, parties, holidays. What sort of things they might need or like to buy. What services could you provide?
- There’ll be loads of kids at the Festival and kids love shopping. What would they like (and be able to afford)?
- Do you have a hobby, sport, talent, second language? Can you turn that into a little business?
- What about teaming up with a couple of friends or a sibling to come up with something fun?
- Are you creative? What could you make? Are you great with technology?
- Can someone in your family show you how to make something great?
- Can you re-purpose something you already have at home into something special?
- Still need more ideas? Have a look on the internet – there are loads of ideas to inspire
