The Show After Dark

The Show After Dark is Melbourne’s newest night out with 11 consecutive evenings of pop-up restaurants, bars, live music and entertainment.

As the sun goes down across Melbourne Showgrounds, make your way to The Meadow to tuck into fun, delicious eats from the best restaurants in Melbourne, grab a drink and hear some bangin’ live tunes.

For an award-winning gastronomic experience, visit the Winning Tastes Pavilion or catch Circus Oz NEON live on stage as the 80’s and Flashdance make an acrobatic comeback.

Before they call it a night, grab a cuddle and an insta-worthy selfie from a baby animal in the Animal Nursery and don’t miss the intricate handmade crafts, one-off pieces of art and delicate designs of the decorated cakes in the Spotlight Makers Pavilion.

Immerse yourself in the lights, sounds and latest rides as they come alive in the carnival after the sun sets. The fireworks light up the sky every night in a captivating display of colour and theatre (weather permitting).

The Show After Dark runs from the 22nd of September 2018 until the 2nd of October 2018.
