All That Glitters at Melbourne Central’s Unicorn Festival


Taking place over two colourful days, Melbourne Central will host the city’s first ever Unicorn Festival. On August 3 and 4, visit the precinct to enter a magical, unicorn-themed escape – the perfect alternative to being outside in Melbourne’s dreary winter.

Visitors will be transported to memories of warmer, brighter days with beauty, food and larger-than-life sets all encompassing the mythical creature theme that’s trending all over social media.

Glitter lovers can sink their teeth into unicorn inspired and rainbow sweet treats from Melbourne Central residents, Cupcake Central and Chill Bro, as well as cult Melbourne food vendors, such as Bistro Morgan and Vickie Lu.

Beauty lovers can indulge in ‘unicorn makeovers’ by professional makeup artists, using products from the precinct’s beauty retailers, including Sephora, MAC, Sportsgirl, 3INA and Mr and Mrs Jones.

Finally, snap a pic of your magical finds or full unicorn transformation for your Instagram in the light up photobooth and go into the draw to win a special unicorn stay with St Jerome’s – The Hotel.

A Palm Springs set up complete with inflatable unicorns and a Unicorn Festival DJ will be playing tunes to set the mood.
