The Truffle Melbourne Festival at Queen Victoria Market is a free public event featuring Melbourne's best truffle tastes and experiences – it’s truffle heaven, and the biggest truffle celebration weekend outside Europe.
2019 is our sixth year and we have a large and growing following of dedicated foodies and experience seekers. Each year, rain or shine, exhibitors have sold out on both days.
This year trading hours will be extended beyond Market trading hours on both Saturday and Sunday to cater for an enthusiastic crowd. Exhibitor trading hours will be:
Saturday 22 June, 9am - 7pm
Sunday 23 June, 9am - 5pm
Product sale sell outs. The weekend event is extremely popular and sales are strong across the whole weekend. Great entertainment attracts truffle fans and foodies from across Melbourne, interstate and overseas.
Huge brand exposure and engagement - audited 38,000+ guests attended the 2018 Truffle Melbourne free weekend at QVM and all truffle exhibitors sold out both days. There’s huge PR and social media engagement in the lead up and during the weekend – producing great brand exposure.
