The Economic Impact
of the Lonsdale Street Greek Festival

Lonsdale Street has held particular significance for the Greek community as a precinct for Greek cultural and legal services since mass Greek migration to Australia in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

In the early years of the festival, Lonsdale Street was utilised to create a space for Greek people to gather and preserve culture in a communal environment—the Lonsdale Street Greek Festival. However, recently, it has developed into a more inclusive festival not only to preserve, but to ‘share Greek culture with the rest of multicultural Melbourne’.

As a significant cultural event, the Lonsdale Street Greek Festival also has a sizeable economic contribution.
