For Residents

The St Kilda Festival is back for 2022. This year’s Festival will be held between Saturday 5 February and Sunday 13 February 2022.

As in previous years, it is necessary to implement several full and partial road closures, changing the conditions in the St Kilda area on the above dates. Please be aware that additional traffic in your area may cause some traffic congestion and that the road closures will also increase the number of vehicles parking within the extended festival precinct, including Albert Park, Middle Park, St Kilda East, Elwood and Elsternwick.
