Youth Week


2020 Victorian Youth Week is happening from Friday 3 April to Sunday 12 April.

Victorian Youth Week is a week-long celebration of young people aged 12 to 25, held in April each year. Showcasing more than 100 youth-focused activities, projects and events across the state, Youth Week provides a space for young people to express their ideas and views, and act on issues that affect their lives.

The launch of Nillumbik Youth Week 2020 will coincide with the Eltham Street Food Truck Festival, at Alistair Knox Park on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 April. Featuring an amazing lineup of food trucks, market stalls, activities and local live entertainment, this dog-friendly festival is the perfect way to kick off Youth Week.
