Message from the Lord Mayor


Melbourne is home to Australia’s best cultural experiences, and the Truffle Melbourne Festival is a case in point.

Now in its ninth year, this tasty indulgence on our city’s events calendar is the largest truffle festival outside of Europe. It unites truffle growers, local traders and connoisseurs for a decadent weekend of demonstrations, gastronomical treats and entertainment.

The City of Melbourne is proud to support the festival through its Events Partnership Program and to celebrate our city’s renowned culinary culture.

Thank you to the organisers, volunteers and exhibitors for bringing people together and creating buzz and excitement in the city.
