Grand Final Weekend Events
Of course, the biggest part of the weekend is the all-important final. But why not make a long weekend of it and soak up all of the AFL Grand Final fever?
Grand Final Parade
Head down a day early and see the Toyota AFL Grand Final Parade. Supported by City of Melbourne, the parade gives supporters the chance to see all of the players taking part in the grand final.
Soak up the atmosphere with marching bands and roving entertainers as the Toyota HiLuxes parade the Grand Final teams from the Old Treasury Building to the Live Site at Yarra Park at the MCG on Friday, September 28.
MCG Open Day
On September 30, the MCG will open its doors for the 6th annual MCG Open Day. It’s a free one-day-only event where supporters can access areas of the stadium which are usually off-limits to the public, including the famous hallowed turf!
