The Port Phillip Mussel & Jazz Festival took place 9 and 20 March 2019, with a two-day street party and mollusc feast! Record crowds enjoyed feasting, dancing and celebrating seafood, all to the sounds of Melbourne’s hottest jazz musicians. Think sangria and piping hot mussel paella, wok cooked drunken mussels and craft beer, mussels cooked in a light buttermilk batter served with crispy cos lettuce and chimichuri, and artisan ice-cream and fun for the kids. Some of Melbourne’s top chefs and restaurants take part each year, as well as our own South Melbourne Market restaurants Bambu, Claypots Evening Star, Paco y Lola, Köy and Simply Spanish.
The Festival will return in 2020 – sign up to our newsletter to hear when expressions of interest to be involved open, and to hear festival news first.
