In this section, you can apply to participate in the St Kilda Festival on Festival Sunday, 9 February 2020. Fixed premise businesses located on Acland Street, Shakespeare Grove and Fitzroy Street may apply to occupy or extend the outdoor trading space in front of their premises.
Retail premises may setup displays of items for sale and cafés or restaurants may setup additional seated outdoor trading space for their patrons to indulge in amazing cuisine as they as away the afternoon watching the passing entertainment. Extending your outdoor trading area is a unique way to become involved. Acland, Shakespeare and Fitzroy Streets release their true vibrancy on Festival Sunday, and this is a great way to showcase your business at its finest to the expected 400,000 festival visitors to the City of Port Phillip.
We are here to make your festival experience an enjoyable one and if we can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact us. We can even come down to your site and meet with you in person, at your convenience. Before commencing your application please contact us for a copy of your Festival extended trading space plan.
For public health and safety reasons, the City of Port Phillip Council manages various special events through its Local Law 1 (Community Amenity). A permit is required to trade at the St Kilda Festival and to use council parks and reserves, including the foreshore and roads for a range of activities.
Whilst we encourage and welcome applications from fixed premises, not all traders will be able to extend onto the footpath due to various egress and emergency management reasons. Completing this application does not guarantee acceptance. Applications will be evaluated by St Kilda Festival Management, Victoria Police and the VCGLR (where applicable) and the outcome of your application will be advised in late November. If your application is approved, you will be issued with a tax invoice that must be paid in full before your permit can be issued. St Kilda Festival management reserves the right to cancel your application at any time and without notice. Failure to pay the issued tax invoice within the terms of payment may result in cancellation of your application.
The closing date for all applications is 5:00PM FRIDAY 25 OCTOBER 2019. Late applications cannot be accepted under any circumstances.
To reduce our impact on the environment, please apply electronically below. If you are having trouble with the online application process, a printable version of the application is also available upon request.
Before commencing your application please contact us for a map of your available extended trading space. If you have any questions or would like us to come and visit you at your premises at a time convenient to you, please contact:
