Before we swap our bikinis and crop tops for scarves and skinny jeans, let’s have one last hurrah before summer officially ends. The best way to say adios to summer? Festivals and parties of course!

Diner En Blanc
If you’re one of the lucky few who managed to score a ticket to Diner En Blanc, your weekend is set! Shimmy into your best all white ensemble and get ready to be whisked to a top-secret location to enjoy the chicest picnic ever. FOMO? Register online now to be placed on their waiting list. Even if you don’t get to join in this year, there’s always 2017!

MARCS Laneway Festival
The MARCS Laneway Festival is back again for Round 2. Boasting incredible graffiti and laneway art, mouthwatering food, delish cocktails, and the sickest beats, this is possibly the most Melbourne festival ever. So make your way down to Duckboard Place and ACDC Lane and have a taste of what Melbourne is all about.

The 29th Lonsdale St. Greek Festival
Get ready to scarf down street food done just as well as yiayia’s (that’s grandma, for non-Greek speakers). After a hearty meal, burn off all the calories you’ve ate by joining Zorba til’ you drop. Feeling more relaxed? Then just sit back and enjoy the sounds of Greek musician Alkinoos Ionnides.

Beat of Brunswick
If you’re all about the music, then you can’t go wrong by hitting up the inaugural Beat of Brunswick festival. From 1pm to 1am, do a little café hopping, bar crawling, or window-shopping on Brunswick Street as you enjoy the sounds of live music and DJs.

Insider Tip: Back Alley Social – Backyard House Party Edition
Now here’s a not-so-little secret, The Bayside Social hosts themed Back Alley Socials every now then. This time around, it’s all about the backyard house party. So get ready to dance on couches and party to all your favorite jams. Plus, we hear that you just might be able to score a $50 tab.
