The AFL Grand Final is back in Melbourne and it’s time to celebrate with the fun and excitement of the Footy Festival and Grand Final Parade. Located within the Yarra Park precinct outside the MCG, the 2022 Virgin Australia Footy Festival will be jam-packed full of free entertainment including player appearances, giveaways, music and some of Melbourne's best food trucks and bars over four days culminating with the 2022 Toyota AFL Grand Final.

Children will have the most epic experience within the festival’s grounds as they explore the Chemist Warehouse Locker Room, Kayo Sports Inflatable Dartboard, AFLW Super Slide, Bunnings Fan Warehouse, Maccas Kick 2 Kick and get involved in the NAB AFL Auskick Clinics. And you never know, they might spot some AFL and AFLW stars too!

The Virgin Australia Footy Festival will be amplified with the return of this year’s reimagined Toyota Grand Final Parade on Grand Final Eve, which will kick off as a boat parade down the Yarra before banking at Birrarung Marr and continuing in a Toyota HiLux motorcade through the Footy Festival to the MCG.

The festivities continue after the parade with the Grand Final Eve Concert from 1 pm. There’s no shortage of footy action with four big games of AFLW played in Melbourne on Grand Final Eve including a double-header at Richmond’s Punt Road Oval. When it comes to the big dance, festival goers can sit back with friends and watch the 2022 Toyota AFL Grand Final LIVE on the big screens!
