To celebrate the festive season, Destination Docklands is hosting ‘Jubilation’, a festival of light, community, food and entertainment. 

Jubilation is a free three-day Christmas event in Docklands. Destination Docklands is supporting CFA at a key time for our volunteer fire brigades – the start of the Victorian bushfire season. The event will raise funds for CFA volunteers' development and assist in spreading valuable safety messaging for holiday makers over the hot summer months.

We have been invited to host a special CFA zone and we are looking for both staff and volunteers who would like to be part of our various displays and activities over the course of the event.

Members participating in the CFA zone will be provided with suitable refreshments and will enjoy some great benefits in Docklands including discounted entry to certain venues, free parking, discounted accommodation and VIP discounts in Harbour Town.

A recognition parade will be held on Saturday at 8.30pm and CFA members from across the state are invited to participate. The parade will take place around the main area of the event and the circuit will be 1.2km. Refreshments for participants will be provided prior to and after the parade.

Get into the festive spirit and let us know if you would like to get involved in this great family event by Tuesday 2 December!
