Local history book display table – Queensberry Cup street festival
October 22 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Hotham History Project invites you to come and say hello from 3pm at our local history book display table at the Queensberry Cup – Saturday afternoon 22nd October 2022.
More than just a race, the Queensberry Cup is a street festival and a celebration of the diverse communities of North Melbourne and West Melbourne.
The festival reflects, celebrates and supports the local residents, businesses, students and workers of our dynamic inner city suburbs. For one day, the main street is closed and turned over to a range of creative and cultural activities.
The Billycart Challenge is the centrepiece of the event, reflecting the neighbourhood’s rich automotive history. Over a number of weeks, community groups and individuals will build their vehicle for the race of the century down Queensberry St. (from Errol to Leveson). Prizes will be awarded for the fastest in various age categories, and the most creative.
Big prizes on offer including $500 to spend at local North Melbourne shops.
PLUS: Lots of sessions leading up to the big day where you can get expert guidance on designing and building your vehicle, as well as access to materials and tools.
Location: Queensberry St. North Melbourne, corner Errol St. and Queensberry St., North Melbourne VIC 3051.
